Welcome back! We hope you all have had a joyous and restful break. We’ve been busy here in the library, preparing for the new semester:
We bid a fond farewell to Kristin “Kiki” Butler, Special Programs Librarian, who has resigned from McKillop Library after 10 years of service to pursue school media K-12 librarianship. Although she will be missed, we wish Kiki the best of luck in her endeavors.

Homepage Website Changes
You may notice some visual differences when you go to our homepage at http://library.salve.edu.
- We have added links to related content on each tab (books, articles, videos). For example, the “articles” tab includes links to additional popular databases.
- On the right sidebar under Quick Links, we added shortcuts to library departments such as Circulation & Borrowing, Curriculum Resources and Archives & Special Collections.
Feel free to send in comments, suggestions, etc. on the changes we have made and/or any changes you would like to see either on our website or in the library at http://library.salve.edu/feedback.html or use an anonymous comment box next to any library printer!
