Help Us Improve Your Research Process!

Do you wish it were simpler to find the information you really need? Do you get tired of clicking only to end up back where you started? The Libraries are in the process of investigating ways to improve our research tools. Please take our survey:

Survey on the Libraries' Search Tools and the Research Process

Your participation will help the Libraries understand how you currently search for information, identify problems you have using library resources, and gather your suggestions on how to make searching easier and more effective. The results of this survey will guide the Libraries' investigation of new online search tools that could make your research process easier. We appreciate your participation.

Watch for survey findings to be posted to this News section after April 2.

Hungry? Thirsty? We've Got Vending Machines

Need a snack? No need to leave the library. We've got soda, snack, and hot drink vending machines in the South Lounge of Honnold/Mudd Library. Where is the South Lounge? Tucked away, but worth the trip, the South Lounge is on the first floor of the Honnold Side of the library. The easiest way to find it is to take the Honnold elevator to the 1st floor and turn left as you leave the elevator. The South Lounge also has tables/chairs, a sofa, a TV, and a microwave.
