New Feature--Text a Call Number

You found the perfect book for your research paper in the library’s catalog. Now you need to run down to the first floor of the library to find it. But you don’t have pen and paper handy to jot down the call number. No worries! Use Hunter Library’s new “Send via Text Message” feature! Simply click on the “Send via Text Message” button, enter your 10 digit cell phone number, choose your service provider from the drop-down menu, and click Send. The title of the book, the call number, and the location of the book in the library will come to your cell phone as a text message. Snap!

Access The Chronicle of Higher Education on the Go

Hunter Library makes it more convenient to access premium articles from the Chronicle and eliminates the need for a personal subscription. When you create a free account at the Chronicle using your WCU email address, you gain access to all subscriber content online from your personal computer without going through the library's web page.
You will also get access to the Chronicle on your iPad. Download the app from the Apple store and sign in with your account. If you have a different tablet or smart phone, log on to the Chronicle from your web browser; the site is optimized for mobile interfaces.

Registering for a free account with the Chronicle gives you access to all content through the library's campus-wide subscription. You will need to use a email address. If you already have a personal account, but created it using a different email address, you will have to create a new account to take advantage of this service.
