With the Fall 2022 semester at hand, the Electronic Resources & Systems (ERS) department at Gleeson offers this overview of our electronic resources (or e-resources), highlighting some essential features to acquaint and orient those beginning research with where to start their search.
Returning students and other patrons will notice some changes to where some items are located on the library website. User Experience & Web Design Librarian and ERS department member, Anders Lyon, has been hard at work the last several months updating its overall look and feel.
With its search box prominently displayed front and center on the library home page, Fusion is among our most heavily used resources providing a one-stop shop for a quick look at what research materials might be available on nearly any given topic. Many of Gleeson’s most used e-resources are included in Fusion. Search results are easily sortable by a wide range of factors, including date published, material type, and publication.
Databases, Journal Finder, Ignacio Library Catalog
- Databases lists all of Gleeson’s research databases, which are available for you to search.
- Journal Finder allows for searching library holdings by publication title, giving online access to thousands of journals, magazines, and newspapers, both latest issues and back files of titles ranging from pop culture interests to scholarly, peer-reviewed academic/scientific fields.
- Ignacio is a complete listing of all Gleeson’s books (print and ebooks) as well as videos and encyclopedia/reference works.
Connect to Online Resources
This page offers detailed info on accessing Gleeson’s e-resources via library websites as well as via content provider sites (if you find yourself at a restricted site from a Google search and wonder if we have access, etc.)
In addition, there are links to useful pages such as Linking to Library Resources (to share articles with fellow students and faculty), Gleeson’s guide to Using Ebooks, and our growing set of FAQs covering a broad array of library-wide matters.
Finally, further down the page there are also prominent buttons linking to Gleeson’s Library Systems Status and Report a Problem pages. These provide essential avenues of online exchange between the Electronic Resources & Systems (ERS) department and you, our library patrons.
And not to be overlooked is the “floating” Ask A Librarian button link. A new feature of Gleeson’s redesigned website, this now appears on the lower right-hand corner on every one of the library’s web pages, a one-stop destination for reaching out to various departments at Gleeson for all your library-related queries
