Galvin Library’s website has a brand new look and layout for fall semester. We’ve also added a number of improvements that will make it easier than ever to conduct research online.

  • The tabbed search tool allows you to search for books, articles, journals, or library web pages right from our home page.
     
  • My Library links to your library accounts and course reserves appear on the right-hand sidebar of every page.
     
  • Today’s hours are always listed on the home page.
     
  • Guides to relevant research resources for each academic department. Links to the guides pop up on the home page when you roll over the “Info by Subject” link.
     
  • Guides to finding non-traditional information sources like dissertations, patents, maps, standards, videos, reference materials, and more. Links to the guides pop up when you roll over the “Info by Format” link on the home page.
     
  • Expanded and improved help pages. Click on “Research Help” to see all the options, including printable research guides, FAQs, research workshops, and our Ask a Librarian service.
     
  • New databases. The library has made over 50 new research databases available.
     
  • Improved database searching. You can now search for research databases by keyword, or browse the list of databases alphabetically or by subject.
