New Library Catalog Debuting December 13th

Posted by Carter on December 8, 2010

The Library’s online catalog will soon have a new & improved look. In addition to a streamlined look, it will have all the functions you’re familiar as well as new features.

  • My Search – lets you save your favorite searches and repeat them the next time you log in. It’s great for keeping up with new items about topics you are interested in.
  • My List – you can select titles from your search results and save them in a personalized list inside the library catalog.
  • Edit Search and Filters options – easily refine and filter your search results without going back to previous search pages.

We think you will like the convenience and appearance of the new interface. It will be in place starting Monday, December 13.

Library staff are able to assist with this transition.  Please contact us with any questions or feedback at 359-7587.

Interior Design Posters on Display

Posted by Carter on December 1, 2010

There are so many ways that interior design has contributed to our society – from increasing personal safety, health and wellbeing, to lifestyle improvements, education, research, sustainable designs, and of course the benefits to our living, healing, learning, and working environments. But what have you heard about interior designers providing community service for the public such as assisting underprivileged, impoverished, or disabled people?


These posters were created by teams of students in Jill Eleazer’s Business Practice class during the Fall 2010 semester.  Stop by the library to see them on display now!
