It’s been a long semester, but now you have time to relax and read what you want to, not what you have to. The library can help connect you to whatever you want to read (or watch/listen). Here are a few options:

  • Check out our anime and graphic novel¬†collections
  • Use our random book generator to find books in our Leisure Reading collection
  • I-Share will be shipping books to us till 12/22 (and starting on 1/5/2015)
  • WorldCat delivers until 12/22
  • E-Books are an option even when we’re closed!

If you are not registered for spring classes yet, and need to extend your winter privileges, fill out this form.  Galvin Library will be closed from December 25 through January 4.

Enjoy the break!

Sharing Resources Through Interlibrary Loan

March 15, 2007 at 6:51 pm | Posted in ILL | Comments Off on Sharing Resources Through Interlibrary Loan

Recently, a researcher wrote on the value of free interlibrary loan (ILL) service in the US compared to the fees being charged at UK libraries for ILL materials. ILL at Galvin Library is provided free to our faculty, staff and students. If you’re intrigued by the following quote, read the rest of the article in the Chronicle of Higher Education. “For the most part, libraries silently eat the cost. The significance of that sacrifice goes largely unnoticed. It isn’t the sexiest line on a library budget. But there is something profoundly democratic, surprisingly compassionate, and deeply civic in sharing our national resources in this manner.”
