Library service enhancementsEagleSearch enhancements will occur incrementally through this semester. Search results can now be narrowed by date with a click instead of a sliding bar. Additionally, the search refinement “Add results beyond your library’s collection,” popular with advanced and off-campus researchers, has moved from the upper right of search results to the left-hand column. A new grouping of database research guides provides more detailed instructions for select databases, such as Ebook Central, The New York Times, Mergent Online, Nexis Uni, and even Google Scholar. These and other research guides are suitable for adding to your course Canvas.
Ebooks on reserveOur Course Reserves Search, (formerly print only), now includes ebooks to make it easier for students to find and access available online course materials. If the library owns an electronic version of a print textbook already on the reserve shelf, or a textbook reported to the bookstore, we have added it to the course reserves in EagleSearch. If you’d like to find out if the library could acquire an ebook version of your textbook, please suggest a purchase and we will get back to you. Have you assigned a library ebook but don’t see it in the search? Let us know using our new Textbook Reporting Form. By reporting your textbook, we can add your book to the search, track student savings, and let you know of any changes or updates to your ebook.
