The University Libraries have purchased a new turntable and headphone amplifier setup. We have over 4000 LPs in Morrow. MU students can now go to Morrow and pull an LP from the shelf, brig it upstairs and listen to it in the Morrow reading room.
This is a trial basis. If it is successful, I will purchase another system for Drinko which will allow students to checkout LPs for use in Drinko.
Stop by Morrow and listen to some of these great LPs we have available. Bring your headphones.
New Databases have been added to the Online Databases Page. ABC-CLIO is gone; Historical Abstracts and American History & Life have been picked up by Ebsco. This acquistion provides more content for the user. Proquest has updated Dissertations and Theses, adding more content. And, of course RILM has been added to the page.
