Library today: Ireland Library features collection of Judaica; new research technology available
From UST Libraries
The Archbishop Ireland Memorial Library is featuring a collection of Judaica, including recent books in a reading room display and a print bibliography. More than 100 books on Jewish history and literature published between 2005 and 2007 are available in the Ireland Library for interested readers.
CentralSearch, new research tool, available
A test version of a new research tool, CentralSearch, is available via the UST Libraries Web page. CentralSearch searches across scholarly resources, a type of all-in-one search. The quick-search box looks through newspapers, magazines and multidisciplinary journals, as well as CLICnet (books, DVDs, CDs, scores, etc.) – all at the same time. CentralSearch is a great starting point for general research or to get an overview of a topic. To get focused, in-depth results, you still can search individual research databases as before.
CentralSearch is easy to use, and remember:
- Use CentralSearch to search several subject-related databases at one time.
- Use CentralSearch to help determine the best database for more in-depth research, then link directly to that database.
- Not all UST research databases are included in CentralSearch.
Since CentralSearch is new, we would appreciate feedback. Please send comments and questions to Carolyn DeLuca.
