The library is fortunate to have the Ebsco Special Manuscript Collections on trial through January 31. This fascinating database contains digital versions of rare archival content and historical primary sources such as books, periodicals, newspapers, pamphlets, broadsides, manuscripts, diaries, government documents, and ephemera. The collections included are African American Archives, Native American Archives, Revolutionary War Archives, World War II Archives, and U.S. Bureau of Investigation (now known as the FBI) Case Files. Researchers have the rare opportunity to view all of the typography, graphics and drawings as they were originally presented. Since we have an extended trial period, there is plenty of time to peruse this exciting resource. From the library website, simply click on "Find Articles and More..", then below to the right, click on "Trial Database Offerings" and you're good to go!
With the end of fall semester quickly approaching, we would like to remind students, faculty and staff of the availability of study rooms in Goddard Library. We have seven group study rooms which will accommodate up to six people. The rooms are for small group discussion and quiet study. Rooms may be reserved up to two weeks in advance with a UCR ID card for a maximum of two consecutive hours. Study rooms are equipped with flat screen televisions and other equipment. Rooms are available for use during all 79 hours the library is open each week. To reserve a study room, simply visit the Goddard Library website and use the "Study Rooms" tab to the left of the screen.
