Summer Reading - Now You Can

When the last paper is handed in, the final exam taken, you might finally find yourself with time to read. We know, you read all the time - but the rigors of the semester can keep you from reading something just for fun.

Maybe you've always meant to tackle War and Peace or that Jane Austen novel your mother loves. Or maybe you've seen something intriguing in a library display. But you live in Bemidji and you don't want to come all the way back to return some books in a few weeks.

Now you can check books out of the library - for the whole summer! Just ask, and we will extend your due dates until September.

This idea comes courtesy of a smart student. Got more ideas? We'd like to hear them.

Find It - Eventually

It may be a little tricky to "find it!" on Sunday, May 3rd. That is, the little yellow "find it!" buttons that link citations in the library's databases to full text, print, or interlibrary loan options will be switched off starting at 4a.m. and may remain unavailable into the early afternoon. With any luck, the server should be up an running again before too long.

Meanwhile, you can check availability of a particular journal in print by searching its title in MnPALS or in electronic full text by browsing through these title lists -
