Trying to do academic research but feeling like you need more? Hop aboard one of the two van trips to the University of Massachusetts Amherst Libraries that our library is sponsoring this fall. The first one is coming up on Sunday, October 3. The van will leave the dining hall at 11:30 am and return to Marlboro at 5:30 pm, in time for dinner. We have 14 slots available — sign up at the Library Research Bar.
UMass Amherst is home to one of the major research libraries in the United States. Some of what it has to offer:
- 26 stories (main library), plus a separate science & engineering library
- 3 million books
- Tens of thousands of online journal subscriptions
- Nearly 300 research databases
- 100 subject guides to quickly point you to the best resources for your topic
At UMass, you are welcome to use public computers to access the library’s databases and journals. Maybe a database like PsycINFO, MLA International Bibliography, Art Index, Criminal Justice Abstracts, or Web of Science is just what you need to find the right literature for your project.
While only Massachusetts residents are eligible to borrow books from UMass, you can look through their collection and request any interesting-looking titles via Interlibrary Loan from our library.
