WSU Libraries changing to shared system for online holdings searches, borrowing, more access
Patrons of Washington State University Libraries soon will use a single search box to find journals, books and digitized collections. Users will see other improvements, too, including access to some 9 million titles and 26 million resources from 36 other higher education institutions.
Please join us in honoring the life and legacy of former Washington State University president Glenn Terrell. Dr. Terrell, who served as president from 1967 to 1985, died Friday, August 30, at the age of 93.
New Faculty Invited to Meet Liaison Librarians during Oct. 3 Reception
Faculty newly hired to Washington State University can meet the librarians who serve the reference, library instruction and research needs of each academic department at an Oct. 3 reception. The meet-and-greet is planned from 3-4:30 p.m. at the WSU Libraries’ Manuscripts, Archives and Special Collections exhibit room, just off of the Terrell Library ground-floor atrium.
WSU Libraries is offering a tablet-based app for iPads and certain Android devices so users can browse and access scholarly journal articles from the libraries’ holdings.
BrowZine pulls articles from databases into complete journals, then arranges them by subject on a library-style virtual newsstand. To see a video about BrowZine or download the app, visit http://libguides.wsulibs.wsu.edu/browzine.
From headless people to geocentrism: MASC exhibit features ‘Outrageous Hypotheses’ through October
The libraries’ Manuscripts, Archives and Special Collections will feature Blemmyes, Panotti and other instances of how human knowledge has gone awry over time in its upcoming exhibit, "Outrageous Hypotheses: Selections from the MASC,” that continues through Oct. 31. The exhibit is inspired by this year’s common reading book selection, "Being Wrong: Adventures in the Margin of Error,” by journalist Kathryn Schulz.
Starting Aug. 19, asking a Washington State University librarian for help with a research topic, citation styles or other resources will be just as convenient as searching the Web anytime day or night.
