Announcing CentralSEARCH!



 Available Tuesday January 21st!

The Burritt Library invites you to try our new Discovery Service, CentralSEARCH, to boost your research results.  CentralSEARCH, powered by Summon, allows researchers to use a single interface to search all of the library’s resources in one place.  The simplified single search box is a feature that many researchers are comfortable and familiar with, but now is super-powered with reliable and credible results.  Instead of searching for journals, databases, and library books in different places, you can search for everything in one easy place using simple keywords.  CentralSEARCH’s faceted searching makes it a snap to narrow or broaden results with one click and gives relevant and helpful suggestions for further research.  Check out the full list of features, and let us know what you think!


Off campus access restored!

Off campus access to library databases and electronic resources has been restored.  There may be one or two remaining items that are not working and should you come across them, please let us know!

We thank you for your patience and once again apologize for the inconvenience.
