Library Construction Projects:
Several construction projects are afoot in the Jenks Library, with the accompanying noise and temporary inconveniences associated with construction.
Air conditioning is being added in the Reference Room, Alumni Reading Room, Academic Support Center, and Language and Linguists offices.
Currently the restrooms on the 4th floor are being remodeled. When they are completed, work will begin on the 3rd floor restrooms.
The Mezzanine is being remodeled. That work makes moving between the 3rd and 4th floors, a bit of a challenge.
If you want to get to the Alumni Reading Room, Academic Support Center, Language and Linguistics offices: please use the elevator.
If you want to get to the Curriculum Library, Periodicals, or Global Education: please use the back stairs or the stairs in the stacks.
There is additional work elsewhere in Jenks, but these are the projects within the library.
NEW BIBLE RESOURCES
Jenks Library recently added two resources for biblical studies research and exploring the Christian perspective in all subject areas.
ATLA Religion Database with ATLASerials (EBSCO) provides indexing and full text of major religion and theology journals. Coverage begins in 1908, providing historical as well as current thought and perspective. A unique feature in ATLA is the ability to search for a specific scripture citation and find articles covering the verse. From the advanced search page, in the top search boxes, just select the field “Scripture Citation” and enter a scripture reference.
Christian Periodical Index (EBSCO) provides indexing to journals with an evangelical perspective, with links to some full text. CPI indexes journal articles from across the evangelical Christian perspective. It also includes articles from a wide variety of disciplines that present a Christian viewpoint – science, literature, medicine, music, philosophy, history, sociology, and education.
You will find these resources on the library website. From the library homepage, choose Electronic Resources, then Electronic Resources by Subject – Bible.
Many new books, DVDs, and CDs have been added to the Jenks Library collection in recent months. You can see a list of these new titles on the library website. You can also browse and check them out from the new books display in the library lobby.
