New in Reference

Library Services is pleased to present several new online resources that became available over the summer.

• Biography and Genealogy Master Index
Every discipline has its famous figures. Information on famous people may be found in this index, which contains references to nearly 12 million biographical sketches in more than 2,700 volumes and editions of current and retrospective reference books, covering both contemporary and historical figures throughout the world. Access is limited to computers in the Kirkpatrick Library, including the Harmon Computer Commons.

• Criminal Justice Periodical Index
This database indexes articles from 200 U.S. and international journals with indexing from 1981 forward and has abstracts beginning in 1999. It also contains 45 high-demand publications in full-text.

• CollegeSource
This electronic resource contains over 11,000 college catalogs in complete cover-to-cover original format including two-year, four-year, graduate, and professional schools. It also contains school profiles and links to each institution's web page. Adobe Acrobat 3.0 or higher is needed to view the catalogs. Access is limited to computers in the Kirkpatrick Library, including the Harmon Computer Commons.

• Shepards Citations
Shepards provides citations to United States Supreme Court cases, Federal District and Federal Courts of Appeal cases, and Missouri Courts of Appeal and Supreme Court cases. The Central community can access these databases from any web-accessible computer, given the correct authorization and password.




Jason Butler, SGA President (left), and Library Services Dean Pal Rao cut the ribbon marking the arrival of five new photocopiers. Butler says, "These new copiers represent what can be accomplished when students and administrators partner together".




The copiers take dollar bills, change, and new photocopy cards. If youy have an old photocopy card, go to the library Circulation Desk to trade in your old card for a new one.
