Hot News

Online Database Access

The hot news of the day is that all of the library's online databases (including the ever-popular CQ Researcher) are now available to students off campus as well as on campus! To access the databases from off campus, from the library home page (www.clark.edu/Library) select Research Databases and Indexes, and enter your Clark ID at the prompt. Enjoy!

Faculty Brown Bag: Information Literacy

What's the difference between information literacy and library instruction? Come to a brown bag lunch presentation in the library's Cannell Room and find out! Mark you calendars for Friday, October 4, at 12:00 noon, , for an informative and entertaining presentation by Kitty Mackey. You'll also get a demonstration of some of the new online services the library is providing to meet the information needs of the Clark Community both on and off campus. So bring your lunch -- we'll provide the dessert!

Hurry, Spaces are Going Fast!

Well, OK, there's really plenty of space for everyone. But if you have a web site that students need to access, let us know the URL and we'll list it with all the others on the library's web pages.

This is a nice service to students -- some of those web addresses get pretty long, you know, and it can be challenging to tpye korrectly, pyte corectlee, type them correctly!

To join the growing and prestigous list, just send your link to Kitty, Roxanne, or Joan.

Keep on Rollin'!

Many thanks to Rick Bartz, Jennifer Wheeler, Joshua Wheeler (Jennifer's son), Sally Demos, Cheryl Mancini, Susan Bays and Susan Coyne for all their creative efforts in getting the patriotic cart ready for the cart parade -- complete with tunes from "The Pride of America"

New Titles for Business & Technology

Thanks to a generous Foundation grant, the library has added approximately 114 new titles to the Business and Technology Collection. Circulation in these areas was up 162% last year, and the new titles will help fill the need with quality materials. Following is a sample of the new titles:
