New Bailey Library Resources & Services

Our Fall 2006 student focus group had provided the Bailey Library staff with invaluable input about students’ needs. We are excited to offer the following new library resources and services beginning Winter 2007:

1. A Google-like search box on the library homepage for searching all library research resources: books, e-books, media items, e-journal articles, etc.

2. A Google-like search box on the library homepage for searching library books, e-books and media items only.

3. Access to MeLCat, the statewide library collection of 7+ million volumes, on the library homepage. Students can initiate borrowing requests online, and the items will arrive at the Bailey Library for pick-up in approximately five business days.

4. Laptop security cables that can be checked out at the library circulation counter for securing personal laptops while in use at the library.

Please do not hesitate to contact the library staff if you have any questions. 

Save your time, succeed in school, use the library!
