ODU Library Catalog downtime and upgrade

The OhioLINK Library Catalog should not be affected. Thank you for your patience and cooperation during this time.  


New Microform Reader/Printer Now in the Library!
ODU Library is excited to announce that we now have a new microform reader/printer! Located conveniently and very visibly near the Periodicals on the Top Floor, this versatile reader is equipped for 16mm and 35mm microfilm as well as microfiche. The microform reader has its own adjoining printer. And it’s easy to use, with automatic settings that provide the best quality reading and printing. Come and take a look! 


Research Help Redesigned
With the new year comes a new Research Help portal for ODU faculty, staff, and students! Take a look at our Research Help portal at http://www.ohiodominican.edu/library/help. You responded, and we listened! It has an improved design and more robust resources available, including resources for citing and managing your information online and tips and tutorials for searching.


Connect to Catholic News

The Boston Globe recently launched a new site called Crux: Covering All Things Catholic, a news and opinion site. Connect to Crux and other Catholic news sites from the library's Quick Reference: News.

For more information about the September 2014 launch of Crux, read the article from the Columbia Journalism Review.
