You are needed to participate in the biannual Faculty Library Survey!
Note that your suggestions, comments, and even criticisms are very important to us and are used to improve the library.
Note also that your personal participation THIS YEAR is very important in enabling us to reach a minimum cohort by which to judge our efforts, resources, and services, and to answer to outside agencies such as SACS.
Springer & Palgrave titles come with unlimited users and unlimited downloads.
Great for textbooks and parallel readings!

The library supports 4 citation styles, each with its own support page.
But things have changed! Both the Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association 6th Edition and the MLA Handbook, 8th ed. now say that urls for database content are now .
What do you think? If you want to express an opinion about the use of hyperlinks in the citation, or want to see your citation style support page updated, contact the liaison that supports your style. (HINT: Their name is on the guide page.)
Check your departmental budget allocations, spending, and balance.
Determine the status of all your book, eBook and media orders - date ordered, date received, list, cost, call number assigned, etc.
Contact your liaison to order new materials.
Contact Head of Acquisitions to inquire about unfilled orders.
FYI - By now your department should have spent 80% of your budget. This prevents the library from being overwhelmed with last minute orders by departments who do not want to waste their money. Don't wait! Buy now, before it is too late!
