Full-text article databases and the web are wonderful, and you can certainly do a lot of research through them without stepping into the library. However not everything is full-text online, and there are some resources that are only available in the library:
- If you want to read a print book or watch a DVD that you have found in the library catalog, you will have to come to the library to check it out. Materials for the Curriculum Resource Center can be found in the catalog, but must be checked out in person as well.
- The reference collection is in the library and may not be checked out. If you need to use one of our reference titles, you will have to come to the library.
- There are other materials that may only be accessed in the library, such as our print journal collection and the materials in Special Collections.
- While you can contact librarians on the phone and through email, it is often easier and faster to get your questions answered if you come to the library and sit with a librarian while we help you.
