Please consider yourself invited, as a university or community member, to organize library displays. Though creativity and fun with colors are a plus, you do NOT have to climb a ladder.
As a matter of fact, you do not actually need to create the display either, if you don't want to. All you need to do is contact Kay Young (342-1134) to get on the schedule and bring her the display materials.
Two glass display cases are available to promote non-partisan information, events, and scholarly activities.

More than 53 million records have been entered into the WorldCat database. Librarians worldwide collaborate to build this catalog to the books in thousands of libraries. At a rate of one book record about every twelve seconds, the commitment to sharing and accuracy is phenomenal.
Want to watch WorldCat grow?
ISI Web of Science consists of high-quality databases containing information gathered from more than 8000 scholarly journals in all areas of research.
Help Screens offer suggestions for ease in searching. Besides searching these databases by topic, author, or source title, researchers can perform a "cited reference search". A cited reference search enables researchers to use a known published work to find other, later works that cite it.
Please remind students that the library and computer labs are open even more than the usual 97 hours per week during exam time.Library Hours
The Beaulieu Encyclopedia of the Automobile is an extraordinary automotive reference source. This two-volume set, published by the National Motor Museum, contains information on nearly every vehicle made from the invention of the automobile to the present. There are over 4500 illustrations and 5000 car makers listed, as well as nearly 150 biographies of prominent people in the auto industry.
Most illustrations are highly detailed black and white, although there is an impressive collection of color photos. Information given about each auto includes the manufacturer, country of origin, years produced, as well as a brief description and history.
The most common models, as well as the most obscure, are covered, including the A.A.A. to the Ford to the Zwickau. This set of books has amazing breadth of coverage and should be considered an invaluable resource for the automobile enthusiast.
