Welcome back!  The first day of the semester and the library is already busy with students.  Here is a list of 10 things (some new!) the library has to offer to help make your semester a success. 
  • Library Catalog - with a new look and added functionality - bookmarks and permalinks
  • help with user names and passwords - in person at the library or try the online guide
  • Databases - over 170 online resources for research with links to full-texts articles available 24/7
  • iPhone app - you can do research right from your phone! 
  • Rosetta Stone - New! featuring 25 different languages (ask at the circulation desk)
  • AP Style guide - new resource from the Associated Press
  • Ask a Librarian! - we are here to help
  • LibX toolbar - direct access to the Tarleton Libraries resources when searching the web
  • Google Scholar - helps you find scholarly literature; the Tarleton library helps you access it!
  • Computers - the library has over 170 machines available. Now with card readers on the upper and lower floors of the library.
I hope everyone has a GREAT semester.  And please remember the library is here to help you!   The library is open 101 per week.
