Check out the exciting new things happening throughout DePauw’s libraries!
The Chronicle of Higher Education
Students nearing the end of their time at college and interested in Higher Education can now access The Chronicle. The Chronicle is an effective tool for placing and searching job ads within the realm of Higher Education. We now offer online access to The Chronicle for the entire campus back to January 6 of 1995. You can reach it directly by following this link:
Newspaper Direct Press Display
This database provides online access to today’s newspapers from around the world in full-color, full-page format. The ever-expanding collection currently includes over 400 U.S. and international titles. Just like reading the familiar print edition, viewers can browse articles and other key content, such as pictures, advertisements, classifieds, and notices. The service also provides a 60-day back file and the ability to perform keyword searches across all titles and entire back file. Some newspapers even offer an audio option that allows the paper to be read to you.
You can visit the Press Display via the following link…
The Elsevier Journal Pilot
The Elsevier journal pilot program is now underway. In this pilot the library pays-per-use for electronic access to journal articles published by Elsevier. You can access these articles via Science Direct or through library databases via SFX.
Here are some tips for making efficient use of the pay-per-use model:
Viewing the abstract is free, so always read the abstract before viewing an article to make sure it is germane to your needs.
Download every article you view. Once an article has been viewed it can be downloaded at no extra cost. Therefore, always download and SAVE a viewed article in order to avoid having the library pay for it again.
Articles needed by a class during the course of a semester can be placed on reserve. Students should access the article via reserves instead of directly from Elsevier.
Once an article is viewed, it is freely available to anyone at DePauw for viewing and downloading for 24 hours. If an article is introduced for use in a class, ask everyone to view/download/save the article immediately.
If you discover an article you need via SFX (or another way) and you have more than one choice for accessing the article, try accessing the article via a subscription product first rather than selecting an Elsevier product.
New Music Library
The library is now open in the Green Center for the Performing Arts. This is a brand new facility that is roughly six times the size of the old music library. Stop in for a visit and say hello to our new music librarian, Misti Shaw email@example.com
Update on Roy O. West Renovation
The renovation of Roy O. West will not take place until next summer. More information will be available during the school year as we prepare.
Academic departments will be hearing from their Library Liaison soon (if they haven’t already). Liaisons can help faculty connect with any library collections and services they might need. Find out more at
