The new and improved menu of online resources for research – complete with the ever important logon information for off-campus use – is now available in the library.  You can pick up a copy of the list (located on the corner of the library circulation desk facing the main seating area) OR download the list (PDF) from the Library Media Center share folder on the school server (file name = onlinepasswords_0809).

Helpful hint: Download the PDF of this list to your personal flash drive!

A few highlights…

  • New this year – Access Science, Columbia International Affairs Online (a.k.a. CIAO), Science Direct, and a new suite of literature resources called the Literary Reference Center.  Poetry lovers should check out the Columbia Granger’s Poetry Database which is part of this suite.
  • Only accessible from school – Project MUSE and Science Direct.  You can search both from anywhere and read abstracts, but you have to be on-campus to download the full-text.  Another use for that handy flash drive you keep in your backpack!
  • Noodle Tools (link on left menu) – If you didn’t have a chance to try this tool last spring, create a personal account for this citation manager to test it out.  It formats MLA and APA citations for you, saves them in your account, and then alphabetizes and formats them as Works Cited (MLA) or References (APA) lists that can be exported to Word.

Happy researching!
