Librarian's Recommendation

Viewit@AUP and LibKey Nomad

Recommended by Sally Murray, Librarian

If you want to see if the library has an article, you go to the library catalog, Primo, and type in the article title but if you are wandering the web and run into an article use these to help you see whether or not the library has what you want.

Two of my favorite things take a few minutes to set up but saves you HOURS of time and saves you money as well.

Artstor, our high quality image database

Recommended by Jorge Sosa, Librarian

This time I would like to recommend Artstor,  a high quality image database. My enthusiasm about Artstor started when I began teaching information literacy during art history senior seminars.

Nowadays, Artstor is a multidisciplinary database that has merged with JSTOR and provides more than 2.5 million images of artifacts, historical objects, industry products, photos, paintings, sculptures, architecture, etc.

Make an appointment

Recommended by Michael Stoepel, Librarian

One of my favorite pages of the library homepage is the Make an Appointment page.

Basically, it is to make an appointment with a librarian to talk about research – your research / the student’s research. The librarians can sit down with the students – research conversations I would call them – which can last up to one hour.

The ebooks page

Recommended by Sally Murray, Librarian

One of my favorite pages is the ebooks page!!! The library has access to over 700,000 ebooks but there are some on this page that we’ve selected as especially useful. You can get the MLA Handbook and the Chicago Manual of Style to help you create citations.   

There are Reference Collections of ebooks which are excellent places to start research on topics you don’t know much about!  Want to know who was in a war, what years was it fought, who won, major battles – try reference collections!
