In conjunction with SHAC, the library will present an informational display for Sexual Assault Awareness Week on the 1st floor of the library from today through Friday, April 17. In addition to books on sexual assault, the display will feature other resources such as fact cards, information sheets, and magnets aimed at spreading awareness and preventing sexual violence in the community.
To celebrate National Poetry Month, the Library has created a display of selected works from our collection in the first floor Reference area. The display showcases the works of poets such as Robert Lowell, Gwendolyn Brooks, and Donald Hall, along with the official poster for this year's celebration. National Poetry Month was established by the Academy of American Poets in 1996 to highlight the importance of poetry to American life and culture. To learn more, visit the Academy's webpage about the celebration, or check out the Library of Congress poetry board on Pinterest.
The long-running book series Side Effects of Drugs Annual is now available in e-book format from the J.W. England Library. Each volume from the beginning of the series (1977) to the present is available online through the ScienceDirect platform. Users can access this series directly on ScienceDirect or via the library's journal list/e-book list or the catalog. Going forward, newly-published volumes will be added to the library's collection in electronic format, rather than in print.
Transitioning to electronic access for Side Effects of Drugs Annual provides several benefits for USciences. First, it provides the community with more flexible access options, including from off campus. Second, our new subscription costs less than our previous cost for acquiring the annual print volumes. We hope you find this new access method conducive to your ongoing research and academic needs.
