Bibliofile RE-INTRODUCING EAGLE SEARCH—NEW AND IMPROVED!

We’ve always had an Eagle Search box on our front page—but it recently got quite the update. Previously, our Eagle Search was hosted by Proquest’s Summon, and while it held a number of our resources, it was not as expansive as it could be. Now, Eagle Search is powered by Ebsco Discovery Service, or EDS. It acts as a single platform that gathers physical books, ebooks, journal articles, videos, newspaper articles and more that Warner Library has access to in one place. There is more coverage than before, and it works a great deal like Google, with the ease of a single search. In addition, research starters, encyclopedic entries created by EBSCO, may appear for certain searches, which can be accessed for general information. If applicable, our online research guides might appear in a special box within the results, for additional information related to your search. Also, save any PDF you find to Google Drive, OneDrive or Dropbox using the "Save PDF to Cloud" link. Any questions? Call us at 610-340-1777!

FROM THE DIRECTOR’S DESK By Jim Sauer, Director of University Library

The Love of Booklovers

Dr. Jim Sauer Director of University Library

Recently, I re-read a touching little book by Helene Hanff called 84, Charing Cross Road. It is an epistolary memoir of correspondence between herself and a bookstore worker, Frank Doel, at the address listed in the book’s title. The Philadelphia-born script writer Helene Hanff, while living in New York City, began ordering books from the stodgy London bookstore right after World War II. The letters are full of Helene’s American wit and effervescence in comparison to the British bookstore worker’s formal and professional manner. The comic interaction this creates is a joy. It is a love story not of personal romance, but of personal friendship. Books are the subtheme of the relationship. But the relationship that is generated goes beyond the individuals to Frank Doel’s fellow workers and family. Friendship, generosity, service, humor and some tragedy make this a wonderful book. You feel part of the discussions that go on about life and literature. People that love books are part of a special society that allows us to make friendships with people across all cultures, classes and denominations. To experience and appreciate a book is a great gift of God. I have listed as a sidebar on Page 4 the books ordered, mocked, appreciated and referred to in 84, Charing Cross Road. It is an eclectic reading list of books you may have read, want to read, never want to read or never heard of. But it does give you the picture of the readings of one booklover in post-War America.

ONE BUTTON STUDIO COMING THIS FALL! By Joy Dlugosz

Update to RefWorks

Through the efforts of the library, and with financial support from a fantastic Eastern University alumnus and donor, the One Button Studio will be ready for students to use this Fall semester.

Several new features and updates have been added to RefWorks over the past months:

What is a One Button Studio?

New Citation Style Languages have b een added, including foreign languages.

Publicly shared folders have en h anced spacing and indenting.

References exported from databases or discovery tools—like our new Eagle Search!— through proxy are now properly imported.

Users logged into RefWorks will not need to login during exporting.

The One Button Studio is a simplified video recording setup that can be used without any previous video production experience. The design of the studio allows you to create high-quality and polished video projects without having to know anything about lights and cameras. You only need to bring your flash drive with you and push the Enter button on a wireless keyboard. The One Button Studio solution drastically simplifies the video production workflow, eliminating several time-consuming steps. The end result is a studio experience that requires the bare minimum of time and effort while simultaneously providing a consistently highquality result packaged on a thumb drive in a standard format video file. The studio will be located on the upper level of the library in Room 333. Questions? Please contact Joy Dlugosz, Project Developer (jdlugosz@eastern.edu) What kinds of things can you do in a One Button Studio?
