The University Libraries’ homepage has a fresh new look for the fall semester! The handy quick search box has been moved to the top of the page to make finding databases, journals and books faster and easier.
We have also simplified the process of finding electronic course materials by merging the eReserves system with Blackboard, the University’s course management system. You can access your Blackboard account through the link on the left side of our homepage, just log in with your NetID and password.
You will notice that some of the quick links on the left side of the page have been updated to make finding resources easier. For example, we added a link to CitationFox, our handy APA and MLA citation guides. We also added a “My Library Account” link so you can check due dates, renew items and see if you have any outstanding fines.
Over the past year we have worked hard to compile a series of user guides designed to help different segments of the UAlbany community - distance learners, graduate students and users with disabilities to name a few - get the most out of their library experience. Links to these guides are now located in the “Resources For” section on the lower left side of the homepage.
