The Library on SMUport

A little more convenience in your (academic) lives....

Now when you log on to SMUport your eyes will be drawn to the centre of the page. That's where the library lives. We (actually, our systems librarian Peter Webster) have designed a great little presence for the library which allows you direct and easy access to many of our most important resources and services.

You can do quick searches of Novanet or for journal articles. Or you can follow links to our web site, our hours and contact info - even to this blog! Check it out the next time you're in SMUport.
This is all part of our plan to meet you wherever you are. Hmmm, maybe we should be in MySpace or, better yet, Facebook (I don't think I'm ready for Second Life). What do you think? Drop me a line (comment on this post).
