From the Director's Desk
Have you visited your library lately? These days a visit to the library does not necessarily mean that you have walked in the door of the building. As with most transactions and events in the 21st Century, there are also virtual options for visiting your library. In case you missed the changes and trends occurring in your UVI Libraries in recent years, allow me to share some of the options with you.
There are many opportunities to visit your Libraries.
- One way, is to visit us when you login to the myCampus portal: http://www.uvi.edu, and click on myCampus. As a valid member of the UVI community, your network credentials may be used to login to the UVI portal. Select the Library tab there to get to the Libraries catalog and databases page.
- Another way is to visit: http://library.uvi.edu. This is a page within the main UVI web page with links to information about the libraries and its resources. Among the resources you will find descriptions of our special collections, public service policies, and library database summaries.
- Of course, the option of walking in the front door of the library on either campus is still there. We will be celebrating National Library Week, April 13-19th. Our schedule of upcoming events for that week will be published soon. We hope to see you there!
I’m certain you already know that libraries provide an impressive wealth of resources to supplement academic studies and to build lifelong information-seeking skills. Don’t be fooled by the size of our building! Our resources are indeed vast, and virtual access plays a critical role in 21st Century information services at UVI. The changes and new trends for information access and delivery are some of the additional reasons for visiting your libraries. We are developing electronic library guides called LibGuides to guide your research efforts around the clock. In tandem with LibGuides, we are offering a new service called LibAnswers. Look for the ASK US button on the web pages, and ask us your questions or search the developing knowledge base for guidance in your research, even when the doors to the library buildings are closed.
Watch this News Bytes LibGuide for more information about upcoming events and new developments in library programming. We welcome your questions and suggestions.
