Feel free to recommend a book or video purchase by emailing me. If you’d like a list of potential titles for purchase on a particular subject, let me know.   Remember that our collection development policy stipulates that we do not purchase core texts assigned for classes.  Also, many more books are available in digital format; let me know if you prefer an e-book format. If you’ve published a book or chapter I would be interested in purchasing it for our collection.  Funds will be available the week of June 1st.

New book titles (in general) can be browsed on the BOOKS tab of the  library’s homepage; you can also browse new films under the FILM tab. Try the RSS for Communications, Business or Law. Watch my RSS Feeds for Communication video to learn how to embed alerts in you myHome@ithaca account.

SAKAI AND LIBRARY RESERVES (by Ben Hogben)

Ben Hogben, our Access Services Manager, just posted an important note about our move to Sakai  for electronic materials to Intercom.  Feel free to contact our Reserve department as listed in this post for specific details:

The Ithaca College Library is revising its Course Reserve System to include Sakai.

The Ithaca College Library is revising its Course Reserve System for Electronic Materials to comply with copyright guidelines.

The Library will continue to place print and media items on reserve at the request of the instructor. For more information on using Sakai for digitized course materials, please review the Library’s Course Reserves in Sakai guide.
