Greetings and happy fall-my thoughts have turned to pumpkins and other emblems of the season. It was a pleasure to meet with you at the September faculty meeting. I'll summarize a two key points for those not present. Foremost, please communicate book requests to Matt Kisner to help him coordinate the spending of the department's $4050 annual fund. Also, the library also restructured some of the electronic resources available through DISCUS over summer. As a result, new databases such as EBSCO's "Religion and Philosophy Collection" are now available for the first time while others have been dropped. We are keenly interested in tracking the loss of access to frequently used journal titles that might have occurred during the restructuring of DISCUS. If you no longer have full-text access to a journal title to which you previously had access please let me know. Of course, we are always interested in suggestions for journal titles you'd like to see added to our electronic resources.
|Religion and Philosophy Collection
This past summer we expanded our DISCUS holdings to include the full text version of EBSCO's "Religion and Philosophy Collection." The resource contains over 300 journal titles central to the study of religion and philosophy, making it an excellent resource for undergraduate students. Search results can be narrowed by publication date (using a handy sliding bar), by peer review status, and by full text availability.

|Now there's an easier way to request items from the Library Annex
Have you noticed a location that says "Columbia Annex" in the online catalog? Don't let that stop you from requesting those items. The Library Annex provides a solution to the overcrowding at our libraries through the use of high-density storage. All the items stored at the Annex can be easily requested online through the catalog. Items can be delivered to Thomas Cooper Library for checkout or, if the requested item is an article, can be scanned and delivered directly to your desktop.
