Library Scanning Cardinal Cards at Mullen Entrance

In an effort to ensure the safety of our students, faculty,  staff and collections, the library is now scanning Cardinal Cards at the entrance of Mullen library.  The new procedure is in place to ensure patrons admitted are legitimate.  Non-CUA visitors are welcome with proper photo identification and registration at the guard desk.  The library appreciates your patience and support as we implement this new procedure.

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!

Lock Your Laptop!

Due to a recent theft at Mullen Library we would like to remind all patrons to prevent opportunity theft by locking up your laptops.  Laptop locks are available to borrow at the Circulation desk.  You can protect your laptop when you leave your study area to grab a book or use the restroom.  Don’t become a victim of opportunity theft!
