How the Library Survived Disaster

Curious about the Valentine’s Day pipe-burst disaster that closed Elihu Burritt Library, and what we did during repairs? Want to know who draws those awesome whiteboard pictures in front of the Library entrance? Your professors keep telling you to use databases for your assignments – have you seen signs for the Library’s new Spotlight on E-Resources program?

All of this and more is covered in the Library’s latest newsletter! Check it out here: http://library.ccsu.edu/newsletter/spr16_newsletter.pdf
