Need an article not available at the library? Request an ILL.

What is ILL? It stands for Interlibrary loan. When you need a journal article not subscribed by the library, the library can try an get a copy of the article for you from a different library. It's very rare when we cannot get an article.
So don't forget about ILL.

RefWorks -- What's that?

Simply put, RefWorks is a citation manager. You can export article information from the various databases -- EBSCO Academic Search Premier, ProQuest Nursing and Allied Health, OVID ADU Journals, Science Direct etc. to RefWorks. You can then alphabetize and create a "bibliography" in any style format you wish -- i.e. APA, MLA, Chicago Style etc.

This is useful if you are compiling many article citations. RefWorks will allow any type of citation -- books, websites, etc, but journal articles are very popular here at ADU.
Here is the link to the RefWorks Subject Guide to learn more http://adu.libguides.com/refworks

Book Swap -- Library Welcomes Books

The library is trying to restart its "book swap". We welcome any donations you might have (we prefer fiction titles).

What is a "book swap" you might ask? Well, its a free book exchange. A way to circulate free donated books to all on campus. Since the library has a very small fiction collection we offer this.
You can come just "take a book" from the book swap collection and enjoy or you can bring a book to donate to the collection and take a book.

The book swap collection is located near the photocopier.
