New Database: Book Review Index Online Plus

The Gardner-Harvey Library has just subscribed to Book Review Index Online Plus. It is an excellent resource for tracking down book reviews and providing many of them in full-text.

Library Resources Still At Risk - Support OhioLINK Funding!

OhioLINK provides a wealth of resources to the Ohio academic community, and all at pennies per search (or less)! The ongoing appropriation situation is described at the Support OhioLINK Funding! site.

State funding has kept OhioLINK running, but increasing electronic resource costs are keeping OhioLINK from adding resources and threatening the cancellation of journal and database subscriptions.

Have you personally benefited from OhioLINK? Tell your story on the site, or read what others have to say.

RefWorks: Creating bibliographies made easy!

Just to let you know, MU Libraries have added RefWorks, a web-based tool for managing citations and creating bibliographies. More information on it is available at http://www.lib.muohio.edu/spotlight/story.php?id=150 and it may be accessed directly for new or returning users at http://www.refworks.com/refworks

We hope to put together some instructional sessions on this new tool (I did a brief session on January 31, the PowerPoint for which is linked here). Let us know if you'd be interested in learning more about it or how to use it.
