Streaming videos now available through library
Have you found yourself needing a video clip for a class presentation? Are you interested in viewing films anytime and from anywhere? Do you need an archival newsreel of FDR? The Library now offers you two streaming video packages, Films on Demand and Academic Video Online (Alexander Street), that allow you to do all this and much more!
No more waiting for your turn to check-out a video, no more DVD overdue fines and no more watching DVDs in the library using headphones. You can watch these films from anywhere and at anytime! Plus, there are lots of nifty features that allow you to find short clips of film for a specific project, to create your own films by combining a series of clips and to do lots more.
The content in these packages is vast and ranges from interviews, to music and dance, news programs and documentaries, including PBS, BBC, A&E and ABC (to name just a few)! To access and browse these collections, select “Databases by Name” from the library homepage. Then select either “Films on Demand” or “Academic Video Online.”
Eat, drink and stay up all night in the library
Looking for some sugar or caffeine to help you get through finals? The Library will provide coffee, donuts and candy to help fuel your studying each evening from Monday, May 7, until Thursday, May 10! Snacks will be put out at 8 p.m. each evening and will continue into the night while supplies last. Good luck with finals!
Additionally, the library will be open 24 hours during these six days: May 7, May 8, May 9, May 10, May 14 and May 15.

As your semester heats up, come utilize the quiet and group study spaces that the library has to offer. On the second floor of the library, where quiet is enforced, we have individual study rooms, desks and couch areas. On the first floor of the library are computer areas, printers, group study areas and couches. There are also four study rooms upstairs that you can reserve in person or via the “Reserve a Room” link on the library homepage.
