We’re nearly halfway through the fall semester, which means Morse Library is probably already a second home to some of you by now. But did you know about the library’s new features, programs, and acquisitions? Check out our offerings below.

For your viewing pleasure:

  • New to the library’s collection is Films on Demand. This streaming video service provides access to over 2,500 full-length films from BBC, History Education, Ken Burns, National Geographic, PBS, TED, and others. Films are able to be watched in their entirety or in segments. Closed captioning and transcripts are available.
  • Theatre in Video is another streaming service that contains more than 250 definitive performances of the world’s leading plays, together with more than 100
    documentaries about the plays, representing hundreds of leading playwrights, actors and directors.

Workshops/toolbox:

Library Workshops began on Sept. 22. These will continue every Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday until Dec. 3. These useful workshops are set up to allow you to stop by at any point in the hour to learn about a variety of tools and resources: finding class readings, utilizing Drive, becoming a Google Scholar, Excel, and more. Look for them Mondays in Pearsons, Tuesdays and Wednesdays in the library.
