Dear Sociology Faculty,
I hope that everyone's semester is going well. As always, I would like to remind you all that I am here to help support all of your instruction and research needs, including any library instruction sessions that your classes may require. In addition to reminding you of some of the great resources available to you through the University Libraries, I also want to remind you to send me any book requests you may have. There is $2,427.32 remaining in the Sociology department's book collecting fund for the academic year. This money needs to be spent by March 15, so please get in any order by that date.

ILL offers new online feature
Have you ever thought that a book you requested through ILL would make a good addition to our library collection? Now USC faculty who ask to borrow a book or other item from another institution through Interlibrary Loan (ILL) have the option to request that the item be purchased and added to the Libraries' collection. Find out how easy it is to request a purchase.

All faculty members have access to the library through "My Account". "My Account" allows you to:
1) view and renew checked out materials
2) save "preferred searches" in the catalog and receive alerts when new materials are added that match your search
3) keep a record of the materials you have borrowed (optional).
You can do all of this without coming into the library! "My Account" is linked on the library's homepage and within the library's Catalog. Click here for help topics on using "My Account."
