Looking for sources for a research project? Try clicking Start Your Research on the library homepage. We have many subject-specific guides that will point you toward books in our library and others, key databases and journal titles, web sites, and more.
The library wants to share some changes to our database lineup with you. Over the 2013 summer break, our consortial office reviewed databases and made some changes to the databases they support on our behalf. We anticipate that the new database content should more than adequately replace the content no longer available. Please feel free to Ask a Librarian should you have any questions.
On December 10, Chinese writer Mo Yan will be awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature at a ceremony in Stockholm. Born into a farming family in 1955, Guan Moye was a talkative child, and admonitions by his mother to speak less, or risk getting into political trouble, resulted in his pen name, Mo Yan, meaning "Don't Speak." His novels include elements of magical realism and have been compared to the work of Gabriel Garcia Marquez.
