New Medical Resources

To supplement our Access Medicine subscription, we recently purchased Clinical Access, USMLE Easy, Access Surgery and Access Pediatrics. These resources are primarily used by the Physician's Assistant program but can be accessed by all Lemoyne community members.  Clinical Access is a query- based point of care tool. USMLE Easy, like PA Easy is a study tool for the United States Medical Licensing Examination. The two Access databases supplement our electronic textbook and video collection for these specialties. The Health Sciences Librarian can help you use these products if you have questions.

A second collection of Electronic Reference Books for the Nursing Department is avaliable at the link below. Click on the link to see all 29  titles we're offering.


Carry your Card for Entry!

In order to provide improved security, effective 1/20/15 the Noreen Reale Falcone Library will institute card entry hours.  During these hours the front doors will be locked.  Students, faculty and staff will be able to gain access to the library by using their Le Moyne College ID in the card swipe installed at the entrance. 


Typical card entry hours*

Monday – Thursday: 9:00 pm to 2:00 am

Friday: 4:30 pm to 8:00 pm

Saturday: 5:00 pm to 8:00 pm

Sunday: 8:00 pm to 2:00 am


* These hours will vary during breaks, holidays, etc. and are subject to change without warning due to weather and unexpected closing

Reason for new policy

The Noreen Reale Falcone Library’s new card entry hours were not put in place in response to any specific single incident. It is simply a step to increase the safety and security of our students, faculty and staff.  Requiring card reader entry during the evening hours is becoming standard practice for private universities across the country. A quick swipe of your ID is the most efficient way to help ensure that the library is a secure environment for members of the Le Moyne community.


How to gain entrance

A card swipe panel has been installed at the entrance to the library.  When facing the library, the swipe panel is located close to the front entrance on the far right side.  One simply needs to swipe their valid Le Moyne College ID and the door closest to the panel will be momentarily unlocked.

ConnectNY Expands to 15 Million with a Link to NExpress

Seven million books from NExpress – the collections of Colby, Bates, and Bowdoin, Middlebury, Williams and Wellesley colleges – are now accessible for your direct request!  This new partnership enables students, faculty, and staff at 24 colleges and universities located in four different states to borrow materials from member libraries of the two consortia. The linked delivery service means that over 15 million books will be available in 2-3 days to students, faculty and staff located at the 24 institutions (18 ConnectNY libraries and 6 NExpress libraries).

Le Moyne patrons can expand their searches from ConnectNY to NExpress to easily request library materials held in the six New England libraries.  If you can't find the title in ConnectNY, you can click on the NExpress search icon to find it in NExpress. Once you have placed a request with NExpress, you will receive it in 2-3 days.

Ebooks now available in JSTOR


The Noreen Reale Falcone Library has added Books at JSTOR!

This new product offers e-books from renowned scholarly publishers, including Columbia, Cornell, Havard, Princeton , Yale university presses, and more. Here’s a link to all current and forthcoming publishers:

Books at JSTOR allows unlimited downloading and printing of book chapters by multiple patrons at the same time. Or you can download an ebook as a PDF file that never expires. Books at JSTO
R is integrated with JSTOR journals. So you can search across the full text of books and journals in the same search, or search just within the “Books” tab. Users don't need to log in to a JSTOR account of any kind or use any special software to access these ebooks.

Le Moyne patrons can search Books at JSTOR via the JSTOR platform (via Databases by Name). Individual ebook records will be loaded in the library catalog at a later date, and we will keep you posted.

The Library obtained this product without expending new funds, by using its existing ConnectNY e-book project fund shared among the 18 ConnectNY libraries.
