- Circulating Books
Our circulating collection is our main collection of books that you can take out of the library. This collection is located upstairs (on the 3rd floor of Bush Hall). These books have a CIRC prefix in their call numbers. Most circulating books can be checked out for 4 weeks at a time, although a small number are limited to 7-day loans.
- Reference Books
The reference collection consists of general encyclopedias like the Encyclopedia Americana, and subject encyclopedias like the Encyclopedia of Psychology, as well as almanacs, directories, and handbooks. This collection is located on the library main floor (2nd floor of Bush Hall). These books have a REF prefix in their call numbers. Reference books are useful for looking up factual information, and are often in high demand, as they are a good starting point for research. For these reasons, reference books may not be taken out of the library/learning center.
'Periodicals' refers to magazines, scholarly journals, and newspapers. A few examples include Newsweek and Sports Illustrated, The Journal of Higher Education, and The New York Times. All of our periodicals are located on the library main floor (2nd floor of Bush Hall). Periodicals may not be checked out of the library, except by faculty and staff for a loan period of 3 days. Our 'Current Periodicals' shelves hold this year's issues of all of the periodicals to which we currently subscribe. They are organized according to general subject areas: Architecture & Construction, Automotive, Business, General Interest, Golf & Horticulture, Hospitality, Humanities, Nursing, Parks & Recreation, Science, and Veterinary Science, and Newspapers. Issues from previous years are shelved in a separate area, in alphabetical order. Older issues may be available on microfilm or microfiche, i.e. The New York Times is available on microfilm from 1851 through December 2009. Today's newspapers are generally available on the rack near the cafe. Additionally, several of our new magazines are usually on display next to the other current periodicals.
Library databases (like CINAHL, ScienceDirect, WorldCat) require you to enter your 800# at the login screen if you're off campus. If your ID does not work, you should use the emergency password which is posted in the Resnick Library on VanckoHall. This emergency password changes each semester. You should never be prompted for a username or password for databases that we subscribe to, although not all databases will have full-text availability for the article you're viewing.
ILLiad is our interlibrary loan system for which you create your own account; it is not set up for you ahead of time. You can use your 800# or any username/ID. We suggest using your Delhi webmail name and password to make it easy to remember.
Your Library Account shows all the books you have checked out through the Resnick Library (except Interlibrary Loans). Sign in to your library account using your 800# for the user name AND password, and you can view all your checked-out books, renew your books (they must not be overdue for this to work), and check if you have any library fines.
