On behalf of everybody who works in the Meriam Library, I would like to welcome new and returning students faculty and staff. We are excited to begin the new semester and hope you find plenty of reasons to visit us over the course of the year. Whether you need a quiet study space (Library 3rd floor), are meeting a group (2nd and 4th floors), or want to relax with your laptop in an overstuffed chair (Library 1st floor), we have what you need. And while you're on the first floor, be sure and visit our new coffee machine and try out a cup of Starbucks coffee or a latte. In addition to coffee we have a new discovery search tool on our homepage that lets you type in what you're looking for and retrieve full text results from over twenty of our subscription databases. Need scholarly articles only? Click in the Scholarly (Peer-Reviewed) Journals box. Want a book instead? Click in the Books in Meriam Library box. Our intention is to provide fast one stop service to the majority of the Library's collections. Let us know what you think!
