Library Resources Update!

We now have access to ReferenceUSA.

Common uses are finding businesses based on employee size, sales volume, type of business and location. Students find news articles for research on businesses and perform searches for papers and class projects. Job seekers conduct research about industries and companies. Find executives, corporate families and company descriptions. Small business Owners/Entrepreneurs Conduct powerful market research. Select a location and do a radius search to look up the number of similar businesses in the area.

Now find articles in specific journals with WorldCat

A new limit-by journal/magazine feature makes it faster and easier to find exactly the source you’re looking for. Look for the new “limit to” box under the “Articles” tab on the WorldCat home page, or limit results by “Article” on the Advanced Search page. Even better, you can download a new Tabbed Search Box widget and add this functionality right to your own Web page, blog, or course management system.
Films On Demand now offers videos using Adobe® Flash® Player in 400k and 700k streams. Adobe® Flash® Playerdelivers fast, high-quality viewing for both Windows and Mac
users. Windows Media® video files will continue to be
available in 300K streams, and users can specify their
default video format choice in the "My Preferences" tab.

Visit Library Online and try these today! And if you have questions, please Ask-a-Librarian.
