Overdue items and items on hold by other patrons cannot be renewed! (see the library's policy) Videos Re-Indexed in Library Catalog
The Graduate Research Library has re-indexed videos into its catalog (see this list). This means that all 124 videos now have applicable Library of Congress subject headings describing them and summary paragraphs. Each video is broken down by chapter for quick navigation. Synchronized transcripts and subtitles are available for many of our videos, with the spoken words highlighted on a transcript as a video plays. Many videos also come with an instructor's manual.

Search widgets now available on databases page

The library now provides quick search widgets for all EBSCO databases we subscribe to, ProQuest Dissertations & Theses Full Text, Ebrary ebooks, and Gale Virtual Reference Library on our Research Databases page. These widgets allow you to quickly search these resources without having to access the databases individually. Please know that they are designed for quick retrieval and do not have nearly the comprehensive search tools and limiters that the database advanced search screens themselves have. For comprehensive graduate student library research, we still recommend accessing the databases themselves.
