Library Catalog Gets a New Look

The AU Library Catalog has a new look and added functionality.  If you've used the OhioLINK Library Catalog it will look familiar, as both are built on the same updated platform.  Explore it and let us know what you think.  You can call us at 419-289-5402, write to library@ashland.edu, or text us at 419-768-6106.

Library Spotlight: New Books

New books are added to the library collection throughout the academic year. When shelf ready, titles are featured in the new books area on library main floor, near the computers and recreational reading.

Each title has been selected by AU librarians and is subject to the library's collection development policy which includes professional reviews and faculty recommendations. Contact your library liaison for more information.

The Instructional Resource Center Blog routinely provides information regarding new additions to the IRC, juvenile, and education collections.
