Dear Mathematics Faculty member,
As mid-semester begins and deadlines approach, here are some library features to help you stay informed:
Want to know when the Libraries receive new works on a certain subject? You can receive automatic email notices when new materials arrive that match your saved search(es). Saving preferred searches and setting up alerts are part of the University Libraries' My Account features. Click here for instructions or drop by the Math Library for assistance.
Browsing the current periodicals in the Math Library just got a little easier. A complete list of the printed periodicals available for browsing is now displayed in the section. Even more mathematics journals and articles are available 24-hours a day online.
The library staff are always happy to help you. Please do not hesitate to contact us with any questions or requests.

JSTOR provides access to online journals in all academic subjects. JSTOR collections provide full-text access to USC students and faculty for 59 mathematics journals. JSTOR titles start with volume one so this collection includes some titles back to the 19th century.
Check out an iPad
Student Government has partnered with Thomas Cooper Library to make 20 iPads available for checkout to students, staff and faculty. For more information about checkout click here.
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.
Are you getting the most out of
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."
