Fall 2008: what’s new

Welcome back! (and for the new USF Poly students, welcome!)

The Library has new resources to start the new academic year: some 10 000 e-books have been added to our collections, as well as multiple databases, especially for business and arts & sciences.

I’m sure you have noticed the new website as well ( for those of you reading this through the feed). All your favorite links are still there (Search the catalog, Search the databases, Connect Remotely, etc.) and you will find new pages with information on plagiarism and copyright, for example. Please note that the online forms are not functional right now but they are being worked on and they will be available again real soon. We have print versions of some of the forms at the Front Desk if need be.

Catalog-wise, two changes: the USF Sarasota/Manatee collections are now integrated in the USF catalog, no need to do a separate search. As well, we are still running the beta of the USF version of WorldCat Local. This is a new generation of catalog with a lot of Web 2.0 applications. Try it and let us know what you think.

We would also like to point out the new scanner in the Open Use Lab, attached to a multimedia workstation. Software for ADA access has also been installed on specific workstations as well.

Have a great year, and please remember that we are here to help!

UPDATE: All online forms but one are now operational. The still missing form is for faculty to request an A/V item to be shown in class.
