Welcome Back!

Listen. Isn’t that the sound of air hissing out of beach balls and various flotation devices? 

What comes next, like one wave on another, is the sight of you climbing back up on stage, onto lab benches, back behind keyboards and easels. 

Our job is to help you become more thoughtful, more resourceful and more playful scholars. We’ve been working all summer to make our resources and services easier to find and use.  Our new web site is aimed at: putting more of the stuff you use every day right out front; making it easier to contact staff, renew books and check your library account; improving targeted research portals; expanding access to online journals; and
just finding out what’s new. 

In the coming months look for “search everything” functionality that will allow you to search across many resources in a single search: books, journal articles, images, archives, & more. 

In the meantime, settle in and get ready to bring us your research paradoxes, puzzles and conundrums, or just stop by and chat.
