Enter the library's ugly mug contest!  

You can vote for our ugliest mug two ways:
1. Come to the library, fill out an entry blank, and put it in your choice for ugliest mug.
2.  Take a look at the photos of the ugly mugs.  Send an email to with the following:
--Your choice for ugliest mug (mugs are numbered for your convenience)
--A library-related question (like:  what's the best database for psychology or how do I find books in other libraries?)
--Your email address.
We'll pick one entry at random during Interterm to receive a $10 Mojo's gift card.
We'll also answer your questions via campus announce lists and on the library's Facebook page.

New database



American Doctoral Dissertations provides electronic access to the only comprehensive record of dissertations accepted by American universities. Containing more than 172,000 theses and dissertations in total from 1902 to the present, it was created with the generous support of the H. W. Wilson Foundation and the Congregational Library & Archives in Boston.

Newly enhanced with an additional 80,000 citations for theses and dissertations, the new citations include a link to access the full text, when available, via the Institutional Repository where the thesis or dissertation is housed such as OhioLINK, Rochester Institute of Technology and North Carolina State University.
