Library Elf

August 14th, 2007 • Robb Brunansky

Are you looking for a way to avoid having library fines? Do you wish that you could keep up with your public library account and your seminary library account in one place? LibraryElf may be just what you need. LibraryElf is a free online service that helps you manage the library loans associated with your various accounts. Once you set up an account with LibraryElf, you can receive email or RSS alerts to notify you of approaching due dates before the fines catch up to you.

LibraryElf is compatible with library accounts at SBTS, LPTS, and the Louisville Free Public Library.

Real and Virtual Facelifts

August 10th, 2007 • Bruce Keisling

If you are reading this and have previously visited the library’s web pages, you will immediately notice that much has changed. For several months members of the library staff have been planning and developing this new web site that enables us to serve you better today and going forward.

If you have used the library building in the past, you will also notice that a number of changes and improvements were made over the summer to the main floor. We hope you like our new look.

Send me an email if you have comments or suggestions.

EEBO and Early American Imprints

August 1st, 2007 • Robb Brunansky

Patrons now can access electronic holdings from two of our online databases through our online catalog. The resources in the Early English Books Online and Early American Imprints Series 1 databases are accessible by simply searching in the catalog.

How does this work? Let’s say you want to read Abraham Booth’s Glad Tidings to Perishing Sinners from the comfort of your own home. You can use your home computer to visit the catalog and search using the keywords Abraham Booth Perishing Sinners.

The catalog will bring up several results, including one that has a link in the “More Info” column. Click on this link, agree to the copyright conditions, and you will be redirected to a page from which you can read the full text of the book without the side effect of actually smelling that old book smell.
