Barb and I are excited to share with you our trial for a product that makes locating credible sources for research projects easier for students. We appreciate any feedback you have. The product, EBSCO Discovery Service, allows students to search for sources from our building catalogs and most of our databases using a single search bar. Check it out (see below for login information).
Aahhh, it’s a new year with a promise for a new you. If you’re like me, you enter each year with plans to make changes in your life—maybe you want to lose weight or to spend more time with family and friends.
