*** UPDATE *** As of 3pm, the active loan due dates that were changed to January 8, 2019 have been restored. Again, thank you for your patience and understanding as we work to improve the library system’s handling of due dates.
Staff attempts to improve the Alma/Primo library system’s handling of due dates during semester breaks led to an inadvertent modification of active loans’ due dates this week. Active loans’ due dates were changed to January 8, 2019. The due date calendar has been restored and we are currently working to fix those due dates that were modified. Please note that we are aware of the issue and working on it. Thank you for your patience and understanding.

Compliments of the Friends of the Burritt Library & Sodexo
Did you know that the Burritt Library subscribes to numerous collections of online resources that are available to our students, faculty and staff from both on and off campus? As a member of the CCSU community you have access to a wide range of databases, e-journals, eBooks and other tools to support you in your studies, research and teaching! With so many resources available, it can be difficult to keep track of them all. In our Spotlight series, we will highlight one of these resources each month to help connect our students and faculty with some of the unique resources available via the Elihu Burritt Library, and to offer some tips and tricks for using them. In our fourth and final installment of the Fall 2018 series, allow us to introduce you to Oxford Art Online. View the newsletter (PDF) or review the Spotlight on e-Resources LibGuide
