Coming soon! AccessScience update

Starting in September, AccessScience is going to become more mobile, searchable, customized, in-depth, topical, enhanced, and even more of an amazing online scientific reference tool than ever before!

AccessScience is the first place for students to turn to for engaging, trustworthy explanations of scientific concepts and processes. With more than 8,000 contributing scientists – including 38 Nobel Prize winners – this award-winning site guides undergraduates to find what they need quickly and easily, while encouraging a passion for scientific knowledge and discovery.

New “Ask-A-Librarian” service

Students, staff and faculty can get help from the Library without going to the Library. All they have to do is click on the Ask-a-Librarian section of the Library home page. Once there, they have three options. They can search the FAQs to find answers to the most frequently asked questions, such as questions about textbooks, hours of operation, scholarly journals, etc. Or, they can email their question to the Library. When they use the email option, they should always include their region/campus to make sure the right person responds to them. Finally, they can chat with a librarian. The live chat option is available for a few hours per day. So even if you can’t make it to the Library, you can still get the help you need.
