What's Going On?
JSTOR Is Now Available:
Our library is pleased to announce that we now offer access to JSTOR, specifically the Arts & Sciences Collections I, II and III. These collections can be accessed through the online catalogue (articles, when relevant, will appear in your search results), and you can also search directly in the JSTOR site (see link below) once you have created your personal JSTOR account. JSTOR access is available to all Huntingdon students, faculty and staff.
The Digital Public Library of America Launches:
"The vision of a national digital library has been circulating among librarians, scholars, educators, and private industry representatives since the early 1990s. Efforts led by a range of organizations, including the Library of Congress, HathiTrust, and the Internet Archive, have successfully built resources that provide books, images, historic records, and audiovisual materials to anyone with Internet access. Many universities, public libraries, and other public-spirited organizations have digitized materials, but these digital collections often exist in silos. The DPLA brings these different viewpoints, experiences, and collections together in a single platform and portal, providing open and coherent access to our society’s digitized cultural heritage."

QR Codes Come to the Library:
The Library has begun incorporating QR Code technology. As you walk around the building you will see QR Codes in various areas of the stacks and on the doors to a few of our study rooms. Scan these codes with your smart device (there are free QR Code scanning apps available), and learn more about our collections or about the people whose names have been given to some of our study rooms.
