Digital Commons Network

Date Posted: April 11, 2013

The Digital Commons Network brings together scholarship from hundreds of universities and colleges  (including La Salle University), providing open access to peer-reviewed journal articles, book chapters, dissertations, working papers, conference proceedings, and other original scholarly work. This constantly growing body of publications is curated by university librarians and their supporting institutions, and represents thousands of disciplines and subject areas—from Architecture to Zoology.

The intuitive interface invites you to explore discipline-specific Commons, where you can view and follow popular authors, institutions, and publications in your field. And you’ll never run into pay walls or empty records, because only full-text, open-access research and scholarship are included in the network.

This network of research commons continues to grow thanks to the contributions of researchers, librarians, faculty, and students who believe that scholarship is a community enterprise.

ebrary Academic Complete

Date Posted: January 11, 2013

ebrary  Academic Complete gives our patrons access to over 80,000 authoritative e-books in a wide range of subject areas, along with powerful tools to help them find, use, and manage the information they need. Conduct your research on the computer, or try our mobile apps for Nook, Android,  and for iPad, iPhone, and iPod touch! You can download chapters, but not the whole book to Kindle (because Kindle does not use Adobe Digital Editions.)

You can find ebrary books by searching directly on the ebrary platform (it is available from the Database List).  You will also find ebrary books when you are searching Summon as they are all searchable there as well.  Eventually they will also be loaded into the Connelly Library catalog.

Need help?  Check out this LibGuide:

The LibGuide will give you instructions on searching, navigating and downloading. It includes a short training video. There are also instructions on the ebrary homepage  itself.
