You can still use our resources when the Library is closed.

What if you need to do research at midnight or on Sunday afternoon? Go to Articles and Databases on our web page and see the variety of resources we have for you. You can find not only current magazines, newspapers, and professional journals, but you can read articles from nineteenth-century newspapers, check the meaning of a word in the Oxford English Dictionary, get background information from an encyclopedia, read a legal case, find literary criticism, and much, much more! However, you need passwords for off-campus access. Ask at the Reference Desk or click on Online Library on the web page, then Remote Access, and we'll send them to you via e-mail.

We also have approximately 11,000 electronic books (e-books) which can be accessed on your computer day or night. You must set up a free account on campus first, though, so next time you are in the Library, ask a librarian to help you. It will take just a few minutes.

A student has asked if two references are required as for other scholarships, and the answer is "no". See the January 12 posting for all of the rules, or come to the Reference Desk for a copy.
