There are now more ways than ever to get the help that you need in finding library materials for your research. In addition to online reference assistance, email assistance, telephone assistance, and, of course, visiting the library whenever you need to, you can now also make an appointment with a librarian to get intensive one-on-one research assistance and undivided attention. The library has many online and hardcopy resources that many people are unaware of, and the databases have many advanced features for pulling up the desired results. People often think that they've tried all the possibilities and become convinced that the information that they need does not exist, but they do not know what they do not know. Always feel free to ask a librarian for assistance, so stop by, call up, log in, or make an appointment.

The library has a Liaison Program to establish an ongoing partnership with teaching faculty. A librarian has been assigned to each department to answer questions, identify faculty perceptions and needs, improve the quality of library collections, inform faculty of library services and resources, act as a conduit for obtaining information from the academic community regarding issues that affect the library, and more.



 09/20 : Coming Exhibits, Pathfinders, and ISTA Access
Our newest guide to library resources is Advertising and Marketing Information Sources. You can also check out some recently updated business bibliographies on several topics, or the complete list of pathfinders and research guides at the Getting Started section of our website.

Post, biographies, bibliographies, photos, and excerpts of the works of Hispanic authors will be on display in the library lobby through November 28th. Among the authors profiled are Isabel Allende, Julia Alvarez, Sandra Cisneros, Sor Juana Ines de la Cruz, Oscar Hijuelos, Nicholasa Mohr, Octavio Paz, Gary Soto, and William Carlos Williams. There will also be a lecture by Raysa Elena Amador, associate professor and director of Latin American Studies at Adelphi University, entitled, "Narrative and Power: Latina Artists in the United States" on October 11th, downstairs in the Hutchins Gallery. The other exhibit is "Why Archives Matter", A traveling exhibit prepared by the Upstate History Alliance with funding from the Documentary Heritage Program, of New York State.

Information Science and Technology Abstracts is now available from Ebsco, and we're working on adding remote access. MLA Bibliography is no longer available from Ebsco, but it's still available from InfoTrac/Gale.


 09/13 : Trouble Accessing Databases?
Work being done elsewhere on the university computer networks has caused some problems with access to some of the library databases. If you can't get in or get an error message saying that the database is unavailable, there is another way in that you can try. Go to the Alphabetic List of Databases page, and scroll all the way down to the bottom where it says "Non-RPA Links". Sometimes these links are working when the regular links are not. Click on the name of the company that provides the database (which you can find out by looking at the regular links). Unfortunately, these backup links will work only from computers on campus. We're working on getting full access restored. If you're having trouble accessing the databases from home, check our Frequently Asked Questions page to see if it's being caused by one of the situations discussed there rather than this new network problem.

Added some more links to the Constitution bibliography.



 09/12 : We the People...

To get to these or any of the other online books in this set: after our link takes you to the Gale Databases homepage, select "Gale Virtual Reference Library" from the menu. Then you can search through all the books at once, or you can search through a particular book by selecting "View Publications" along side the general subject heading that interests you. You can then select the book you want, and search by keyword or browse the index and table of contents. Another new database is Regional Business News that provides the full text of 75 local business publications.

 08/08 : Everything's Back to Normal (Almost)
The upgrades to LIUCAT are all finished; see the note under August 3 for details. Over the weekend, work being done elsewhere on the university network caused some problems with access to library resources - especially LIUCAT and remote access to the databases - but they should be mostly ok by now. And, as a bonus, Literature Resource Center is back. There's now a problem with the regular link to JSTOR, but, if you're on campus, you can still access it from the backup (Non-RPA) link way down at the bottom of the Alphabetic List of Databases page. Whenever the databases don't seem to be working, it's worth trying these links because sometimes - as happened this weekend - the problem is with our RPA server and not the databases themselves. Unfortunately, if you're trying to access from off campus, you must use the regular RPA links so that the server can authenticate you.


 08/03 : New LIUCAT Coming Friday
New features are being added to LIUCAT, the library's online public access catalog, but implementing them requires that some features be shut down for a couple of days starting sometime tonight (Wednesday). The "List A-Z" search will still be available, but the "Basic" and "Advanced" searches will be down until the new system is up and running on Friday. Part of the database may be back before then, but only "List A-Z" will list our complete holdings. If you need to do a more sophisticated search before Friday, you can use the OCLC WorldCat database. A librarian can show you how to use it to find materials that we own and how to locate the call number.

The new features include:

  • Being able to browse through our periodical holdings from the main screen.
  • Being able to limit your search by date.
  • The other search limits - Location, Collection, Material Type, and Language - will be in separate boxes for easier selection.
  • A "My Account" tab will let you check to see what books you have out, when they are due, and if you owe any fines or have any blocks on your account.

And a new fact has been added to our Baby Panda page.



 08/02 : Movie Poster Display
Three more vintage movie posters from our collection of over 5000 are currently on display on the library's upper floor, this time showcasing films that have tackled the tough issue of alcoholism. You can also view the posters for the top 100 golden age movies on our website.

The Library Workshop Schedule for the Fall semester has been posted.



 07/26 : Emergency Network Maintenance
From IT: "Please be advised that emergency network upgrades will be performed this evening after 8 p.m. Mainly, the network within the C.W. Post B. Davis Schwartz Library will be offline during the evening hours and will be back online by beginning of business day tomorrow."


 07/25 : Gym Closing
Until further notice, the gymnasium at Pratt Recreation Center will be closed for floor reconditioning. This closure affects only the gymnasium; the other areas in Pratt will be open for business as usual.


 07/21 : New Trial Database and Sunday Hours
Please note that the library will be open this Sunday from 2:00-6:00. And while you're here, you can try our latest trial database, InfoSci-Online. Covering research, trends, technologies, challenges, and other topics in the fields of Information Science, Information Technology, and Information Management, this is a comprehensive collection of over 6,400 full-text book chapters, journal articles, case studies, and conference papers.


 07/20 : Links
Added a new link to the African American Art on the Internet page. And, if you haven't seen it yet, our award winning African Americans in the Visual Arts: A Historical Perspective page is always available.


 07/18 : New Exhibit
The latest exhibit in the library lobby, "Anonymous and Anonymity", explores the idea of being anonymous and the many implications anonymity in literary authorship, monetary gifts, biological donations, internet crimes, twelve step programs, and more.


 07/14 : Database Access and Business Information on the Net
The World Wide Web Business Sources page has been updated.

The databases, PAIS International and PAIS Archive are no longer available. Literature Resource Center and Health Source - Consumer Edition should still be available, and we're working on getting them restored to the database menus.



 07/13 : Attention Art Lovers
A new trial database for July is CAMIO (Catalog of Art Museum Images Online) where you can browse through a collection of the world's fine and decorative art from prehistoric to contemporary times. A password is needed, so contact the Digital Initiatives & Art Slide Library x2928 (1-516-299-2928).


 07/11 : New Books in the CBR

On Friday, the section of road between the Little Theatre and the Conolly Gym will be closed due to construction.



 06/15 : FirstSearch Database News and Collection Development
OCLC's Union List of Periodicals has been absorbed into OCLC's WorldCat, so the information can still be accessed there. OCLC has also added LILCat: Long Island Library Catalog which is a subset of WorldCat that is limited to the holdings of Long Island's libraries - good for finding out what's available locally.

Have you ever wondered how we choose materials to add to our collection? The library's Collection Policy Statement is now available on our website.



 06/13 : Having Trouble Accessing Databases from Home?
Personal firewalls and other internet security software on your computer can block some databases too. The Frequently Asked Questions page has been updated with a link to a page that can help you correct this problem.


 06/09 : A Real Update!
The newly renamed Digital Initiatives Department and Art Slide Library also has a newly redesigned website.

The ebrary database is now available remotely from your home computer.

The library will be open this Sunday from 2:00 - 6:00.



 06/02 : InfoTrac/Gale Database Problems
They're feeling better now.


 06/02 : InfoTrac/Gale Database Problems
Gale systems are experiencing technical difficulties with their databases today. An error message on their website says that technicians are actively working on the problem and that they expect it to be fixed shortly.


 05/26 : Emergency Maintenance
From LIU Information: "Due to emergency power maintenance, the University network will be inaccessible after business hours during the hours of 9 p.m. to midnight. We apologize for any inconvenience in advance."

I don't know if this will affect the library's website or access to our databases. But, if you ever have a problem getting here, you can try going to library.liu.edu (it's on a different server) and using the database pages for the Brooklyn or Southampton campuses (or going to their websites directly).

Also please note that the library will be closed Monday for Memorial Day.



 05/24 : Pathological Trials
The trial databases, Academic Search Premier and Business Source Premier, both seem to be working. I've deleted the links to the databases that aren't.

 03/15 : Cool Site of the Day
Landmark's Citation Machine will format the information that you enter onto a form into APA and MLA citation styles, but it does have a few quirks. It fails to capitalize each significant word of the title in MLA style unless you type it in correctly yourself. However, it does automatically make all words in the title lower case in APA style even if you type it wrong, but it's not smart enough to recognize proper nouns that should remain capitalized. It doesn't automatically abbreviate months in MLA style, so make sure you do so yourself. It doesn't italicize the title of a webpage in APA style, and it doesn't add "http://" to the url if you don't enter it yourself. So heed the disclaimer at the bottom that advises to double check your results in the printed manuals (or our Citation Style pages).


 03/14 : Cool Site of the Day
Infopeople has a Best Search Tools Chart that compares the features of eleven major search engines. They also have a Best Search Engines Quick Guide that shows how to use some of the advanced features or Google, Yahoo Search, and Teoma.


 03/13 : Updates
Updated the Students' Guide to Preventing and Avoiding Plagiarism and the list of databases on the Literary Criticism Pathfinder.


 03/10 : Frequently Asked Questions
The Frequently Asked Questions page contains a lot of useful information about how to make the most of the library and its resources. The newest question to be added is: "What if I find an article listed in a database, and there's no text?". Other recently added or updated questions are:


 03/10 : Business, History, and Biography
The World Wide Web Business Sources page has been updated, and we've recently added so many databases for History and Biography, that I've split them into two separate categories on the Subject List of Databases page.


 03/09 : Cool Site of the Day
Labs.google.com is a new website that is the testing ground for new and different concepts from the creative minds that brought us the Google search engine. They are calling it, "Google's technology playground", and are encouraging us all to come play with the various elements, such as:

Google Maps: entering an address or location allows retrieval of maps and directions very quickly

Google Video: enables you to search a growing archive of transcripts of TV content - from sports to documentaries to news shows

Google SMS (Short Message Service): enables you to send queries as text messages over your mobile phone or device and get answers to your questions

Google Suggest: guesses what you're typing and offers suggestions in real time

And check out the Google Cheat Sheet for tips on getting better search results.



 03/09 : Preventing and Detecting Plagiarism
We've updated the Preventing and Detecting Plagiarism page with more C.W. Post policies, as well as more print and internet resources. There are also links to our student guide to avoiding plagiarism and faculty guide to detecting plagiarism.


 03/07 : Database Tips
The ProQuest Research Library, found under Online Databases - General, provides links to 2600 general interest and scholarly journals covering a range of fields. As a supplement to research, choose the additional specialized databases, such as: ABI/Inform, Newsday, ProQuest Psychology Journals, PsycArticles, etc. To search all of these databases simultaneously, go to the Alphabetical List of Databases and choose ProQuest. You can search an individual database or a combination, by choosing "Select Multiple Databases".

And this just in: the American Medical Association database from ProQuest no longer provides the full text of the articles, but you may still be able to retrieve the text by clicking on the "Article Linker" link to see if it is available in one of our other databases. Or you can search across the databases for a particular journal yourself.



 03/06 : New Exhibit and Database
In conjunction with our new Circus & Buffalo Bill Collection website, a number of the pictures are now on display on the upper floor of the library right outside the Special Collections Department.

 03/03 : Friday Concert and Database Tips
Lexis-Nexis Academic Universe has redesigned its results display screen so that the title of the article is now highlighted with a link, making it much easier to read than the old display that highlighted the name of the newspaper.

Everyone is invited to the free concert Friday night in the library lobby, sponsored by the Post Library Association. Speaking of the PLA, an unfortunate error on their events page listed the wrong dates for the upcoming annual booksale. The correct dates are April 1-3.



 03/02 : New Trial Database
The full text of 40,000 books is available for your perusal from ebrary on our trials page (and yes, they seem to prefer the lower case "e" even though it looks wrong). There's also a link so that you can download the ebrary Reader that you'll need in order to view the text.

Eleven new Ebsco databases are now available for a trial period. They include Academic Search Elite, Newspaper Source, and ERIC; the health-related databases: Health Source - Consumer Edition, Health Source: Nursing/Academic Edition, MEDLINE, CINAHL, Pre-CINAHL, and Clinical Pharmacology; and the business databases: Business Source Elite and Regional Business News. Try them out and let us know what you think.

Friday night, the Post Library Association is presenting the lecture, Raptors: Predators in the Sky with a lecturer from the Theodore Roosevelt Sanctuary and Audubon Center who will be bringing live birds. Hawks, owls, and falcons are important predators in ecosystems and a fascinating group of birds. By observing the unique physical characteristics of live raptors, we will learn how to identify a raptor and understand how they use these adaptations for survival. This free lecture begins at 8:00 p.m. in the library lobby and is open to the general public. Social hour and dinner before the lecture begin at 6:00 in the Hutchins Gallery. Reservations are required. $28 ($5 tax deductible) per person. Call 516-299-2892.



 02/07 : Circus & Buffalo Bill Collection
Images from the Special Collections Department's Circus & Buffalo Bill Collection have been added to our website. This collection consists of such a variety of elements as books, magazines, advertising posters, leaflets, photographs, special illustrations, and pictorial cards of animals and circus people. The father of the American Circus, Phineas T. Barnum, is represented with a signed note, a cartoon, and two of his books. Out from the West, that legendary frontier of song and story was theatrically brought to life by Buffalo Bill's Wild West Show. Our Collection in this area gives a tantalizing flavor of these shows and their popularity. Thus the three rings of daredevil entertainment under the Big Tent and the out-of-doors, devil-may-care action and drama of Western Americana are here united in one collection.
