Help us pick out new chairs

We’re trying to decide between two chairs for use at the library’s computer workstations. Come in and have a seat – you can even push one over to a computer and test it out there. A fabric color will be figured out later – we’re most interested in knowing what our users think is the most comfortable chair. We’ll be taking votes until March 31st.


Create/practice your presentations in the library

Student groups wanting a quiet, private place to create and practice PowerPoint presentations can now come to the library. Room 208 in the back of the library has an A/V cart with computer and LCD projector. It will comfortably seat 8 people. Just come to the library’s circulation desk and check out a key with your MiamiID. The equipment is easy-to-use, but you can always ask a library staff member for help. The A/V cart still has a DVD/VHS player if your group just needs to watch a video for class.

Library Hours over Spring Break

The library will be open 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. during spring break (March 17-21). We will be closed the weekend of March 22-23.

Regular hours resume on Monday, March 24.

New OhioLINK website

OhioLINK has unveiled a new version of their website.

The new page allows you to easily find the information resources you need. A prominent search box on the new page allows visitors to quickly and easily search for: (1) articles and books, (2) books only, (3) articles only, (4) digital videos, or (5) search the OhioLINK Web pages.

There are still direct links on the left side of the home page to specific resources such as the Electronic Journal Center, the Digital Media Center and more than 140 other research databases.
