We have a lot happening this fall, but the big, big news for this week is the launch of our redesigned website, spiffy new catalog, and new Overdrive eBook service, all at Cushing Library. Have questions? Drop by the research desk, send us email, or open a chat session (see “Ask a Librarian” on our website). We’re still gearing up our research desk hours, but we’re here to help!
HNU WorldCat: Articles, Books, eBooks, and More!HNU WorldCat, our awesome new catalog, delivers what you’ve been asking for: one-stop shopping for books, eBooks, full-text ejournal articles, and most other databases. Search everything at once in HNU WorldCat, or pick a tab and search by category. (You can still find our traditional database list and our journals-by-title list.)Our increasingly popular Camino interlibrary borrowing service is integrated seamlessly into HNU WorldCat. If we don’t carry a book, you’ll get a chance to request it from the growing Camino statewide network (fast statewide van delivery). Pepperdine and U Pacific are soon joining Camino! If Camino doesn’t have the book you’re looking for, you can request it from libraries worldwide–one click to request, and we take care of the rest. (That could be our motto!)
Mobile-friendly eBooks and AudiobooksOur new Overdrive eBook collection features hundreds of popular books you can download to your favorite mobile devices, such as iPad, Droid, Nook, Touch, and more. Find bestsellers such as The Help and In the Garden of Beasts, hot titles in higher-ed such as Reframing Academic Leadership, and three special-to-HNU collections: “Connections Project,” “Diverse Voices,” and “Student Success.” More titles added every week. Caution: highly addictive for book-lovers!Event Reminder: International Welcome Reception, 9/8Next week, the Library and the Student Success Center are co-hosting the International Welcome Reception, Thursday, September 8, 12:30 – 1:30.Enjoy music by HNU music student Doug Jones; festivities; an appearance by the Hawk; and great international nibblies.
