The Oxford Dictionary of National Biography (DNB) contains 60,000 biographies of deceased British figures, who shaped 2,500 years of history.
Books which have been ordered by the library but are not yet in the stacks now appear in MaconCat with the location: On Order. We can’t guarantee when the book will be available, but its location will be Stacks when it is available.
Access to E-resources
There is a new icon where “URL” used to be in MaconCat. This icon links to electronic reserves, e-books, streaming video,
streaming audio, and other digital information.
The new password system on campus affects your off-campus login access to the library databases and e-journals, so use your new network password for access.
MaconCat and ILL (ILLiad) logins are NOT affected, so continue to use your current passwords in these systems.
