Read magazines at home!

The Burritt Library has just acquired a trial subscription to Flipster, a service that allows you to view your favorite popular magazines from your computer, tablet or phone.

Just a few of the titles that are available are Time, National Geographic, Wired, and Rolling Stone. In addition there are some great academic titles to choose from.

There are a few ways to access these titles. One is to use the link above and search for your titles in the same way you would search our regular library databases. The second way is to access their app:

  • Search the iTunes App Store or the Google Play Store for “Flipster – Digital Magazines”.
  • Locate participating libraries
  • Browse for and download popular magazines to read offline
  • Access digital table of contents for each magazine
  • Read articles in text view
  • Tap highlighted areas to jump to articles and related website

The Human Library event – Thank you all who participated!

Human Library logo

The first Human Library event was a success!  All  21 human books were volunteers: students, faculty, staff and President Toro.

Subject of books was diverse, from hunting ghosts, through veganism, breaking stereotypes, to overcoming depression, and more.

Thank you also to our readers (45), who were students, staff and faculty.

We plan another Human Library event in 2019.

A to Z List of Databases

The library is happy to announce a new interface for searching and finding library databases!  The change will take place on January 10th, so if you have any input, please let us know!  You can see a preview of the list here:  https://libguides.ccsu.edu/az.php.

There are some new features that not only allow you to search by subject or alphabetically, but you can now perform keyword searches or database type searches (i.e. full text articles only).

Happy Searching!
