Current Periodicals Move Upstairs
You will no longer find periodicals (magazines, journals or newspapers) on the first floor of the library! We recently moved all of the current periodicals into the periodical stacks on the second floor. This allowed us to combine both the current and past issues of each periodical in the stacks at the top of the stairs, where they are arranged from A-Z.
Because we recognize that newspapers and some current periodicals are of significant browsing interest, we are highlighting those in a display area at the top of the stairs. For easy reading access, you will find the most recent issues of The Post Standard, The New York Times, Syracuse New Times and the following periodicals on the front side of the oversize section upstairs:
- America (the Jesuit magazine)
- Art in America
- Motor Trend
- New Republic
- National Geographic
- New York Times Magazine
- New Yorker
- U.S. Catholic
If you think of any additional titles that we should add to this browsing area, or if you have general questions or feedback about our relocation efforts, please email Inga Barnello at Barnello@lemoyne.edu.
15,000 E-books Added!
Le Moyne users can now select from almost 15,000 new e-books in our catalog. This development, made possible by our participation in ConnectNY, allows users to find a title in our library catalog and click through to the ebook version of that title. You can browse through the ebook on your screen, or download it for a 7 day loan if you want to spend more time with it. The ebooks can be read on a variety of devices, including (but not limited to) iPads, KindleFires, and Android devices.
These ebook titles come from sixteen cooperating publishers, and are published between 2010 and the present. New titles will be added monthly with a goal of 35,000 new titles overall! To peruse a complete list of these new e-books, you can do a Keyword search in the library catalog using the term “EBL”.
Political Campaign Buttons on Display at Library
It's election season, and the library has a collection of historic campaign buttons on display. Thomas Magnarelli, Adjunct Professor in History, has graciously loaned his extensive collection of campaign buttons to the library and they will be on view in display cases next to the reference desk until November. Come take a look at buttons from past century as far back as the McKinley/Bryan elections to today's Obama/Romney campaigns!
Questions Answered 2011-2012
For the 2011-2012 academic year the library answered 4,468 questions at all of our service points! The most frequently asked question was help finding a book, followed by users seeking guidance about which database to use.
On the Move
New offices have been created in the Library as we welcome Classroom Services to our building. InterLibrary Loan is now located next to the elevator. Kari Zhe-Heimerman and Cathy Scott have moved to new quarters in the area that was previously media viewing (across from the computer cluster in the back of the library). Media viewing has been moved to the area by the vending machines, where there was more room and plenty of tempting treats!
Confused? Stop and ask anyone at Circulation or the Reference Desk and they'll point you in the right direction.
