New Library Website, Coming Soon!

The library’s refreshed website will become live early next week (the week of August 15)!

Why did we change it?  The library’s page is part of the overall roll-out of the new university website. We’ve gathered a lot feedback and data from students and faculty in order to make the new page as user-friendly as possible. If you have bookmarked a research guide or the library catalog, those will not be changing. If you have any comments or questions, please let us know.

Here's a screenshot of the new homepage:

The guide will explain why this is important and will provide specific instructions (and a sample form) for adding a copyright addendum to your contract.
