Ebooks: eBrary Upgrading to Ebook Central

Posted by isulib on January 10, 2017

eBrary Upgrading to Ebook Central

Migration from eBrary (one of our 2 main e-book suppliers) to ProQuest Ebook Central will take place the afternoon of Wednesday January 11, 2017 (midday pacific time) NO DOWNTIME IS EXPECTED.  The new interface is very similar to the old with all the features of eBrary: custom bookshelves, tagging, highlighting, citations, sharing, etc.  Registered users should find their previously saved titles and links all working and redirected.

For more information regarding the migration view the 3 minute videos on features here:

Toys For Tots Gets Boost from Tech Services

Posted by isulib on December 19, 2016

For the second year, instead of exchanging gifts, Tech Services staff opted to buy toys for the “Toys for Tots” program. We were one of several drop-off site on campus and it was a huge success. We gathered 42 toys for the Marines’ annual toy drive. They came to pick them up on Dec. 9th.

They wanted to know if we wanted to be a collection site again next year and we told them YES!  They remembered us from last year!


Many thanks to everyone who helped make the holidays brighter for children in our community!

Recognition for Charitable Works

Posted by isulib on December 19, 2016

The Library hosted a collection site for the Staff Council’s donation drive to gather winter hats, gloves and scarves for some Vigo County elementary schools (see earlier blog post). The drive ended Dec. 1 and the library collected a wagon load of winter things for children in our community.


The Council wanted to say “Thank You” to all who donated to this drive at our location and gave the library a commemorative holiday ornament for display.

The ornament is hanging on the tree in the Library Administrative Office.

Library Student Assistants Graduate in December

Posted by isulib on December 19, 2016

Two library student assistants received post-graduate degrees on Saturday, December 17th!

  • Samuel Komera, a Graduate Assistant in Special Collections, was supervised by Cinda May and Kendra McCrea and worked with them for about a year.  Samuel received his Master’s Degree in Computer Science on Saturday, December 17th.  He’s from Telanger, Hyderabad, India and his work in Special Collections was focused mostly on revamping the department’s web page.
  • Ramya Sree Matcha was a student assistant in the Interlibrary Loan unit of Technical Services. She worked in that area for the past 3 semesters under Holli Moseman’s supervision.  Ramya, who is originally from Khaman, India, received her Master’s Degree in Electronics and Computer Technology.


Congratulations to both of these fine students!
