The staff of Temple University Libraries are excited about the start of the fall 2011 semester. We want to welcome all of our returning students back to campus, and we welcome all of our new students as well. Temple University Libraries has some new and exciting things in store for the fall campus, plus lots of interesting events for you to attend. Be on the lookout for our “Guide for Library Users” that will appear as an insert in the Temple Student News a few weeks from now. It’s your one-stop guide to everything you need to make great use of the Libraries at Temple. Keep following our library blog throughout the semester. You can also follow us on Twitter at /templelibraries and on Facebook. What’s new? Give our new Summon search a try. It searches the majority of our electronic research systems simultaneously – and fast! Now you can do one search and find the books and articles you need with one system. You’ll find the Summon search box prominently displayed on the Libraries web homepage. It looks like this:
When you visit Paley Library, take a look at the new flex-study space on the first floor in the computer commons. If you need a spot for your group or team to meet for a project, this is a good place for it. If you haven’t been over to the Science & Engineering Library recently, stop in (2nd Fl. of the Engineering Building). We improved all the furniture over the summer, but the project isn’t finished yet. We’ll be adding more computers during the semester. The staff of the Libraries wishes all our students a successful semester. Don’t forget. We are here to help you succeed. If you need any kind of help with research, finding books or articles, getting data, learning how to become a better researcher – we are the people who can help.
