The Weinberg Memorial Library is excited to announce a new search experience that all starts with a single search box.
EBSCO Discovery Service (EDS) is a new tool that will provide a single-entry point for all of the Library’s collections. Using this single, unified search, you can now find books, eBooks, journal articles, and streaming media from across the Library’s databases, electronic resources, and print and media collections. With easy filtering options, you can limit your results by date of publication, publisher, subject, and more.
While you can still look for individual databases in our newly redesigned A-to-Z database list, EDS will fully integrate results from many of our most popular databases meaning you won’t have to conduct the same search across multiple sites.
Want to learn more? Check out our quick start guide or go to the Library’s homepage to start searching today!
The post upgrade color printing issues occurring in Uniprint have been resolved and the work-around posted yesterday is no longer needed.
There is a temporary issue with printing color items through the mobile app and uploading to the Pharos Print Center. To print in color, please open the item you need to print in color on one of the lab computers. Use the print option in that application to select the color printer and click on print. You may use the mobile app or the print center to release the job.
On Monday, May 22, from 8am to 4pm, there will be no patron printing. During this time the Uniprint system will be down so an upgrade can be applied. Please plan accordingly.
The PALCI/E-Z Borrow system is back up and ready for use.
On Tuesday, May 9th from 6am to 10am, the PALCI/E-Z Borrow system will be unavailable for use due to a maintenance update. During the outage, an “Under Maintenance” message will posted, neither the discovery layer nor access to patron accounts will be available.
An additional Group Study Room on the 4th Floor (Rm.419) is now available for student use. Please note the guidelines posted. Good luck preparing for your exams!
You may know that April is National Poetry Month, but did you know that Thursday April 27 is “Poem in Your Pocket” Day? The Academy of American Poets encourages poetry lovers to celebrate by selecting a poem and sharing it with others throughout the day at schools, bookstores, libraries, parks, workplaces, and on social media using the hashtag #PocketPoem.
I am choosing to share here the poem “Sometimes” by Rae Crossman, which illustrates why I love poetry.
Sometimes by Rae Crossman
Rushing into our early morning bedroom
Sometimes poetry is like that:
all tooth fairy
it’s wolf canines
and snap of bone.
Please consider sharing a poem you love or that inspires you with a friend on April 27, either directly or via social media.
