Try out Reference Universe

The library has a service designed to help you find background or introductory information on your research topics.

Reference Universe allows you to search the library’s expensive specialized electronic and print reference collection in a much deeper way. Whereas library catalog searches offer title or subject heading access, Reference Universe searches the complete back-of-the-book indexes and article titles to over 16,000 reference works--then matches those to our local holdings. It offers a way to search the contents of the many specialized encyclopedias and other reference resources we offer. Give it a try! Access is available now (on campus) at

Mind and Body Workout Room Update

We have now added a Stairmaster treadmill to the Mind & Body workout room. The treadmill is located in room 2024 just off the 2nd floor breezeway.

Thank you to all the students and staff who have made comments about the room and signed in on our use survey sheet. Based on the use we have seen and your positive comments we plan to keep the room open for the foreseeable future.
