What’s New at the James A. Cannavino Library
Welcome back to campus! Marist librarians and library staff are ready to help you get this academic year off to a great start with the following new products:
· Credo Reference—an excellent resource to help students find core information about hundreds of topics. The content includes over 650 encyclopedias, dictionaries, atlases, and topical handbooks. Of particular interest is the ability to generate mind maps, creating a visualization of the relationships among a variety of related subject areas.
· PrivCo—PrivCo offers Marist users extensive profiles of over 850,000 privately-held companies around the world. In addition PrivCo contains information about private equity firms, mergers and acquisitions, and venture capital funding. This is a useful resource for management students, but also any student looking for a job or internship with a private company.
· MLA Handbook 8th edition—if you use the MLA style guide for your writing, please note that a new edition is now available. MLA notes that this guide was updated to make the format of the information source irrelevant when creating the citation. Information about the print version of the MLA Handbook as well as online guides that cover the new edition are available on our Citation Style Pathfinder
Finally—a reminder to contact your subject liaison to schedule an in-class bibliographic instruction session or to have a Pathfinder created for your course. We are here to help!
