Irwin Library has a new Laptop-Charging Station in the Information Commons area on the main floor.

If you are using a laptop in the library and need to charge your battery, we have two “universal” chargers available near the Information Commons Desk. Use the Manual on the table to determine which tip to use, plug it into the end of the adapter, and charge away!

As always, if you have any questions, please ask at the Information Commons Desk.

Many of the libraries’ subscription databases have “mobile” versions that are scaled down to fit the screen size of most handheld devices. Just visit our Databases page like normal, but click on the “Mobile” icons located next to the database names to search those databases on your handheld device.

with Dr. James F. McGrath and Brad Matthies

This session will introduce faculty and other interested parties to the Internet Archive, located at This site includes two major features that are useful to academics, each suggested by its name.

First, the site has an archive of the internet. Most if not all of us have found useful information online, only to go back later and find that it had vanished. Using what is referred to as the “Wayback Machine,” the site allows you to enter a URL and in most cases find cached copies of the pages from the site in question. For those creating web links for use by students, it is possible to create links to the internet archive’s static copy of a site and maximize the chances that the page linked to will remain as it is.

Second, the site has an archive of out-of-print books and audio recordings which can be embedded into a web page or downloaded. Some of the same books are available on Google Books, but many others are not. In addition to books and journals in a number of convenient formats, there are classical recordings and much else.

The session, led by Dr. James F. McGrath from the Department of Philosophy and Religion in collaboration with Brad Matthies from the library, will introduce the site, its use, and the resources available there. Attendees will have the opportunity to try out the site and look for resources of the particular sort most relevant to their own needs and interests.

Light refreshments will be provided.
