Happy Spring Break from EMSL!!

On behalf of the Earth and Mineral Sciences Library, we would like to wish you all a safe and relaxing Spring Break!!  We look forward to seeing you all when classes are back in session.


More Changes at EMSL

We have been making some changes behind the scenes and out in the public area to give our patrons more room to work, collaborate, and relax in EMSL. Over the last few months we moved our circulating equipment out behind the desk so you can see the selection we have available, and make our course reserves easier to sort through and browse quickly. Patrons working around our seating area by the north entrance.

We recently moved the current journal collection behind the desk also, condensing it so that we could use the area for seating and other uses. We have many more little changes and a few exciting big ones coming soon, so keep an eye out for those in the next few months!

Fake News guide now available at the libraries

We live in a time of “fuzzy facts” and in a world of information overload. With more and more information appearing on social media first, it can be challenging to know the truth of any statement. To help with this, the library has created a Fake News guide. This web page contains helpful hints for fact checking and shows how to the news is reported.

Web of Science has multiple sections

Web of Science includes sections on science, social sciences, and even arts & humanities. Also available is the Current Contents Connect database, a current awareness tool with latest journal tables of contents, and the Data Citation Index, which provides access to quality research data from repositories across disciplines and around the world.

Linus Pauling Files grows

The major content growth for SpringerMaterials in 2015 was accomplished with a substantial update to the Inorganic Solid Phases Database (Linus Pauling Files). By adding 15,000 data sheets with crystallographic data (+7%), 1,500 phase diagrams (+4%), and 23,000 data points (+9%) to the physical properties data sheets, the Linus Pauling Files now contain 225,000 crystallographic data sheets (210,000 interactive structures), 36,000 phase diagrams (29,000 interactive diagrams) and 287,000 data points in physical properties data sheets.
