Library catalog now searches books, e-books, and videos–journal articles removed

twitterMCK_FB_LIKE

In response to user feedback regarding our new library catalog, changes were recently made to this search tool to improve the usability and overall search experience. The catalog is now focused primarily on finding books, ebooks, and videos.

Users can perform a quick search for articles by clicking on the “articles” button, which will search EBSCOhost databases.

To search other research databases, such as JSTOR, Science Direct, CINAHL Complete, Academic Search Complete, or Lexis Nexis, users can find lists of research databases under the databases button on the library webpage.

Librarians are available to provide research guidance on the catalog and databases for individuals or groups.

Important Changes to EasyBib

twitterMCK_FB_LIKE

The online bibliography tool Easybib was recently purchased by another company, which decided to discontinue the library subscription version of Easybib. Unfortunately this means that the library is no longer able to offer access to Easybib Premium.

Users are still able to access their existing Easybib accounts, but can only format references in MLA Style with the free version of Easybib. Individual subscriptions to the new Easybib Pro, which includes APA Style, are available, but this requires users to pay a monthly fee. The library continues to offer access to RefWorks, which provides similar functionality to Easybib. Please contact a librarian if you have questions about RefWorks or the changes to Easybib.

twitterMCK_FB_LIKE

Conference Attendees

If you’re on-campus for one of the many conferences that Salve hosts, you are welcome to come to the library to use our computers and print your documents and boarding passes!

The computers (PCs & Macs) in the 1st FL East Wing (to the left as you enter the front doors) are reserved for use by conference attendees only. No login is necessary to use these computers. For Salve community members (faculty, staff and students) and other Guests, please use the computers on the opposite side of the 1st FL (Guests should ask at the front desk to be logged into a computer).

You also have full on-campus access to all of our 140+ research databases which include articles, streaming educational videos and audio clips on a variety of topics. Go to our library website at http://library.salve.edu to get started.

If at any time you need assistance, please ask a library staff member for help. Enjoy your stay at Salve Regina University!

Hours
The library is open all summer on an abbreviated schedule. Please check the library hours web page for current library hours.

Fun Collections
Did you know we have a whole browsing area of popular books? It’s a great way to discover books for fun beach reading. Also check out our vast collection of films on DVD! Both areas are located on the 1st FL, East Wing (to the left side as you enter the front door). Come in, cool off (or dry off — lots of rain so far this season) and relax!
