We are highlighting the Personal Finance Lunch & Learn series offered by Prof. Steven Novakovic (Spring 2021).

We’ll also highlight it during Money Smart Week. In 2021 the event is set for April 10-17th.

Library Updates: Services for Spring 2021

All changes below currently (1/29/2021) appear on the top of the library’s website under the Library Services for Spring 2021 link. Here are some highlights:

Building Access. When the building opens on February 8th, you will need your Ithaca College ID card to enter the Gannett Center from the northeast entrance or the south Towers-side entrance on weekends and after 5 pm on weekdays. On weekdays, 7 am – 5 pm, you will be asked to swipe your card inside the library. This will assist with contact tracing. The connecting passage between the library and Whalen will be closed for the Spring semester. Reminder: the library is operating virtually until February 8th.

Interlibrary Loan. Our interlibrary loan system is changing. Starting on Feb. 8, 2021, you will no longer need a separate ILL account. All requests will be managed through your library account and can be made directly from the catalog.

Booking DVDs for class: After finding a DVD using Library Search, the booking option will appear as an additional option under Get It for employees requesting multimedia materials. Faculty should use “Booking” to schedule items for in class use on a particular date.  Refer to this FAQ: https://libanswers.ithaca.edu/faq/323622 (added Feb 2, 2021)

Instructional Videos, Zoom Instruction, & Research Consultations. I can record a presentation in YouTube or Kaltura for your class, visit your class for a demonstration, or meet with students in research consultations (use this form to book a consult). Email me with your objectives and time criteria.

ProQuest databases temporarily unavailable: Saturday, January 30th at 10 pm to Sunday at 6 am

ProQuest will be taking up to an eight-hour maintenance window beginning Saturday, January 30 at 10:00 PM ET to upgrade infrastructure, enhance security, and maintain reliability on many ProQuest products. During this maintenance window, the following products will be temporarily unavailable.

We used to subscribe to the Standard & Poor’s Industry Surveys in print.  This summer, we dropped the print and now have the online edition called NetAdvantage.  You can find it under the Databases tab of the library’s homepage under “N”: https://libguides.ithaca.edu/az.php?a=n

Description:

From Standard & Poor’s, this database contains financial information for US and global companies, including current and past stock prices, annual reports, SEC and Canadian SEDAR filings, industry surveys, and other information for business research and analysis.
