A

t today’s tech-friendly Alden Library, students can chat online with a librarian, renew books on their cell phones and view answers to popular questions (“Can I borrow the textbooks I need for my classes?”) via YouTube. The library expanded its online presence this year with both a new website, featuring an all-in-one search tool known as ArticlesPlus, and a mobile app, which allows students to access their library record from mobile devices, reserve study rooms, and search for books and other materials. The campus is buzzing about the changes — and the policy to abolish late fees for books has everyone smiling. Alumni gifts support the library’s digital initiatives, collections, facilities and more.
