Open Access Week

Oct. 20 through 26 is Open Access Week.  Open Access is the free, immediate, online access to the results of scholarly research.  It has positive implications for publishing scholars and for students looking for free, high-quality, peer-reviewed scholarship. Visit the Monroe Library’s Open Access guide and the Open Textbook guide for more information.

lynda.com video training has arrived

lynda.com is here!

The video computer training service lynda.com is now at the Monroe Library!  It has over two thousand videos on audio, business, CAD, design, photography, video, and the web, like using Pintrest for your band or personal branding basics.  You’ll find how-tos for all Microsoft Office components, as well as software from companies like Adobe.

There are two workstations, one for students and another for staff and faculty.  The student station is a Macintosh, just outside the Media Services offices on the first floor.  The staff and faculty station is in Monroe Library Room 109.  The key for this room can be checked out at the Learning Commons Desk on the first floor, or reserved in advance by contacting Brian Sullivan at sullivan@loyno.edu.  We encourage users to be mindful of others who want to use the service and limit your time intelligently.  Questions go to Jim Hobbs at hobbs@loyno.edu or 504-864-7126.
