The J.W. England Library is pleased to announce that we have significantly expanded our presence in Blackboard. Over the summer, we added a new portal of library information on the Community page, allowing you to access some of our most popular resources right within Blackboard. If you navigate to the Community tab and look in the “My Communities” box, you will find a new link for the “Library” page.
The purpose of this new portal is twofold. First, it allows us to post and share important announcements with the USciences community. In addition to posting items on our blog, News and Notes, we will now distribute important announcements through Blackboard as well. Second, this new portal provides an additional location from which to access important resources like Our Journal List/e-Book List, Databases A-Z, and the various “Resources in Your Major” pages. In the event of any technical issues with the library’s webpage (www.usciences.edu/library) or with the USciences website as a whole, you will still be able to access the Library portal in Blackboard and utilize the resources found there.
We hope that the USciences community finds the Library portal a welcome addition to Blackboard. If you have any questions about this new page or any of our other resources, please reach out to us using Ask a Librarian, call the Reference Desk at 215-596-8967, or visit us in the library.
