Please take a look and we hope you find this guide useful.

Mullen Library Celebrates International Education Week

November 12th – 16th, 2011 is International Education Week.  As part of the University Libraries  contribution to CUA’s International Education Week programs the library has created a study guide on International Education.  You can view the guide by clicking on this url: http://guides.lib.cua.edu/IEW.  A display of library materials will be available to view and check out in the MERIC display area on the first first floor of Mullen library between Nov 14-18.
Please note books marked reference do not circulate.

Current e-books available online

The Library has subscribed to a new service that will provide current e-books from major scholarly presses as they are published throughout the year.  About 3,000 books should be available by year’s end.  To see and access a list of the books acquired to date in 2011, go to the online catalog and do a keyword search for “NetLibrary 10th” limiting the location to Catholic. Individual titles are also accessible through the online catalog record for each book.  Try it out and let us know what you think!
