New Study Areas, Computers - 05/13/2015

If you walk around on the Library Loggia, you'll notice we've added several new desks around the tower and in the open area near buildings 2 and 3. Some have computers on the, whereas other have outlets for you to plug in your Laptops or other devices. Please let us know what you think.

LibAnswers 2.0 - 01/05/2015

The Library upgraded LibAnswers & LibChat over the Winter break. 2.0 provides better performance and increased options to get your questions answered. LibAnswers is a knowledge bank of previous questions that have been asked and answered. If you do not see one that matches your current question, feel free to submit a question and we will answer it. This is NOT for searching for topics for your assignments.

LibChat is also updated. Look for this chat button on our webpage or Libguides  to speak with a Sinclair Librarian, or this one  to chat with a librarian from Know-it-Now for 24/7 after hours help.


New Database - 09/30/2014

The Library now subscribes to a new Art database called ARTstor. It provides over 1.6 million digital images in the arts, architecture, humanities, and sciences with an accessible suite of software tools for teaching and research. Take a look at it at 

LibGuides 2.0 - 08/18/2014

The Library has changed its Libguides over to the new format that is being rolled-out by the vendor. Many of them are still very much under construction. Some new things is that they support tabbed search boxes; there is a newly reconstructed A-Z list of our databases; and there are many other things that are mostly behind the scenes.

Library Homepage Change - 08/11/2014

The Library changed it's homepage this week in order to present a more condensed, portal-like look. New featuers are the image (yes we are a physical place and not just a website), 4 blue boxes that highlight 4 of our most used services, and a multi-tabbed search box where you can search everything in our collection (Libsearch), or for just books, articles, or journal titles.
