Welcome ASP: It’s Summertime!

By - Systems Librarian June 22nd, 2012


Welcome to the 55th Session of ASP!

St. Paul’s School founded the Advanced Studies Program in 1958 to provide talented New Hampshire public and parochial high school juniors with challenging educational opportunities, and use of the Ohrstrom Library is integral to this enriching experience. The staff of Ohrstrom Library welcomes ASP faculty and students and hope that you enjoy and take advantage of its collections and services this summer.

Library Research at ASP

By - Systems Librarian June 29th, 2009

Lura Sanborn – Reference Librarian

Ohrstrom Library staff have put together research guides for several of the courses offered through ASP.  Two guides are recently updated and reformatted, and can now be accessed through the sidebar links in the Ohrstrom Blog (on the left in the blue column, below the “Categories” links under the “Research Guides” heading). Check back for more updated guides.

These guides have been created to showcase library materials relevant to the Artificial Intelligence and Biomedical Ethics ASP research projects.  Click on the screenshots below to access the guides, or find the links in the blog sidebar under the “Research Guides” heading. Each guide has also been converted to PDF format so they can be easily printed or downloaded for off-line access.  The PDF links are located at the bottom of each guide.
