Collections page updated

The library website's Collections page is updated, with eight
collections added. A major addition are search boxes for most of the
collections that allow you to search those collections separately within
the catalog. This could be done with the Advanced Search function of the
catalog, but many will find the special search boxes convenient.

You can try them by following the links from the new Collections page:

Instant Messaging with Librarians

Students, faculty and staff are invited to instantly communicate with a librarian at the UMD Library Reference Desk via our new Instant Messaging (IM) �Plugoo� widget

(see http://www.d.umn.edu/lib/askus/index.htm)

during hours that the desk is open. The Library monitored six Instant Messaging networks for the past 18 months (and will continue to do so), but now people are not required to be a member of an IM network. No logins, just type your questions in the chat window in the upper right corner of the page. Library assistance is now just a few keystrokes away!

Thanks!!!
