Check-It-Out @ ATSM Library Issue 7, 2015: From The
University Librarian

From the University Librarian

In our last Newsletter in December I discussed our new liaison program where we have a librarian who is the Library’s lead person in working with the faculty and students in the University’s six schools.  I hope you have seen your School’s liaison and that you have his or her email and phone number memorized!  The Library staff is always looking for ways we can improve our support of the ATSU community and I am always looking for your input on the Library’s support including the good, the bad or the ugly!



Here again is the listing of the liaisons with their contact information:

We are also continuing to upgrade our web site and the online resources we are making available for you.  Over the last several months we added two important new resources I hope you have had the opportunity to try.  They are:
