Meet with a Librarian for all your Research Needs

Many changes in the Post Learning Commons and Drexel Library over the summer! One that we are excited to share with you is a new way for SJU students to meet with reference librarians for personalized, in-depth support for coursework.

We can help with formulating and refining topics; searching for and locating relevant, credible sources including articles, books, data, images, and more; and organizing and citing sources. Getting to know a librarian can provide ongoing support throughout your time at the University.  To set up a meeting with a librarian, either complete this form, or make an appointment through Starfish on the student portal.
You can find us in Drexel Library, Rm. 122.

 

Using Open Textbooks as Course Materials

Open Textbooks are textbooks that are licensed to be freely available to the public. The textbooks can be downloaded at no cost or printed more cheaply than traditionally published textbooks. The SJU Library is actively engaged in an Open Textbook initiative. Find out how you can use or adapt open access textbooks to offer your students more affordable course materials.

Workshop for Faculty: Predatory Journals, Open Access, and Journal Impact

What is Open Access and how can we determine if it’s reliable? In this workshop, we will discuss the open access movement and the predatory journals that take advantage of it. We’ll also demonstrate tools that can be used to determine journal quality, such as library databases’ Cabell’s Blacklist and Whitelist.

Changes to Printing Procedures

During the Winter Break, the University introduced a new print management system. There will be a few initial changes outlined in the IT Department’s Knowledge Base.

All returning students and new students must swipe their HawkCards at a printer before printing for the first time this semester.  Simply typing in your credentials may result in printing problems, so remember to SWIPE not TYPE.

If you run into any problems, let us know!
