The electronic version of the Ulrich’s Periodicals Directory is now available through UNISTAR, the Library’s online catalog. Use this resource to obtain bibliographic and publisher information about more than 300,000 journals, determine journals in subject areas of interest, and identify refereed journals.
Dozens of new dictionaries have replaced older editions on the dictionary stands located around the library, and many of the stands themselves have been relocated, to provide library users with the most current and convenient information possible.
Library staff members are often asked if we can give someone a list of the books they have checked out in the past. Our answer has always been, "No." The library takes seriously the privacy of your library records so we do not maintain a list of what you borrow after you return it. "My Reading History" is a new feature which allows you to track items you borrow. Some patrons have asked for this service as a means of recalling a book or author they liked or for keeping a list of what they have already read. Participation in the feature is entirely voluntary.
