Welcome! Below are your Library Updates for Fall 2023
With a new semester here, remember, librarians are here to help support you and your students. We offer in-person or live online instruction sessions, one-on-one research and citations assistance, maintain access to a growing collection of academic resources, both in print and electronic formats, carry essential items for checkout, maintain study rooms and spaces, and well, the list really does go on.
Please keep in touch throughout the year, get to know our resources, give us feedback, and let us know how we can best serve you and our students and their needs.
Damian Chacon, Librarian/Professor I
- Check out our Arts and Humanities Databases. Help us make our students aware of the free resources available to them!
- New eResources
- For news on our eResources (database updates, trials, renewals, and discontinued) please access our eResources guide (Will be updated soon!)
- Literature professors, please check out and inform your students of ProQuest One Literature. This is an excellent acquisition from last year that deserves some attention
- ProQuest One is for scholars who must engage with an exhaustive and diverse set of scholarly resources around a given literary topic for research and course planning. It contains 5 million literature citations from thousands of journals, monographs, dissertations, and more than 500,000 primary works – including rare and obscure texts, multiple versions, and non-traditional sources like comics, theatre performances, and author readings.
- Another is Drama Online
- This award-winning digital library has been created as a response to the need for a high-quality online research tool for drama and literature students, professors, and teachers. It is the only resource to combine exclusively available playtext content and scholarly publications with filmed live performances, film adaptations, and audio plays.
- Library instruction available in all modalities
- Request a librarian for an in-person or live online session. Canvas modules can be created on request for asynchronous courses.

- We create and maintain guides and/or Canvas modules specific to your needs. These could relate to databases, citations and formatting, research, or anything else related to information literacy - one of our institutional learning outcomes.
