Transition Your Experience and Skills

Let me help you transition from the tools, sources, and services you used in the university libraries you've been part of so that they serve you here! Set an appointment--you set the agenda, I'll create the online meeting room and do my best to answer your questions and address your concerns.

Topics to consider including on your list:

  • The library catalog, a discovery system;
  • WorldCat;
  • Ejournal finding;
  • Research databases, including Philosopher's Index and Atla Religion Database;
  • Digital text collections;
  • Sources for background research and context;
  • Interlibrary lending; 
  • Reciprocal access to other Chicago libraries; and
  • Reciprocal access to Chicago seminary and theology libraries.

Reopening Spaces and Restarting Services

The start of the semester also marks a library restart after months of all-remote workplaces and all-digital material access. At long last, readers and researchers will have some access to the library's print collection and spaces (the Information Commons on the Lake Shore Campus and Lewis Library on the Water Tower Campus). Details of this remain subject to change and so at the moment a question arises, consult the library's website with policies and updates, and remember you're always welcome to write to me.
