Dear Hum. V,

By - Research & Instruction Librarian May 12th, 2016

Great to see you this week!


I loved your mind-mapping of the ‘Scholarly Conversation.’


When you’re ready to leap into the academic literature, here’s the page in the research guide (screenshot below) listing four databases providing just that.


As always, please be in touch with any research-y queries!  I love hearing from you. 🙂

Ebsco’s Explora

By - Research & Instruction Librarian October 1st, 2015

The library purchases many collections of digital content from vendor Ebsco (things like digital magazines, journals, newspapers, eBooks).

Now, Ebsco is offering a search box to search this content, at once, simultaneously.  PLUS, they’ve added thousands of AP newsreels.

This interface is named Explora.

Level up, efficiency.
