You’re going to be excited this week – we’re featuring not one, but two new electronic resources for the university community to utilize. I know, contain yourself.
First up, we have a fantastic Reference Collection here in the Library. Unfortunately, sometimes it’s difficult to tell whether a book is useful until you actually look at it yourself. That’s all changed – we now subscribe to Reference Universe. Reference Universe is like one big index of many of the titles right here in our collection. Now you don’t have to guess if the particular book covers your topic. For example, if you search in the Library’s catalog for snowboarding and limit to the Reference Collection, you’ll only find one book. Using Reference Universe, it turns out that there are really TEN titles that have sections on snowboarding. Don’t believe me? See for yourself.
The other new resource that we have to offer is SAGE eReference. Instead of coming to the library, you can browse the entire reference material online! Being reputable sources, you can rest assured that you’re getting quality and up-to-date information from a credible source. Although we currently only have two titles through Sage, we are looking to expand this collection – make sure to use it!
