MJ Library Debuts New Website

Just in time for the new academic year, the library has launched its newly designed and expanded website. The new site serves as a virtual information hub for exploring our resources and learning about our services for the coursework, dissertation, and research needs of our MSP community.

Over the past year, the library has expanded and streamlined access to our online resource collection of literature databases, e-books, and streaming videos to support an all-virtual curriculum during COVID-19. Now, we are well positioned to return to in-person services while continuing to offer virtual services and 24/7 access to our online resources.

The new website features:

  • A single search box (FindIt@MSP) that simultaneously searches across our electronic resources: APA databases (PsycINFO, PsycARTICLES, PsycTESTS, PsycBooks), MEDLINE, EBSCO academic databases, and e-books. It also links out to items we have in ProQuest and includes freely available open access content.
  • Streamlined pages on Using our Resources, including accessing our eResources, borrowing our physical resources, copyright, interlibrary loan, and more.
  • Tailored information pages dedicated to Services for Students and Services for Faculty that include a variety of online help guides focused on resources, tips, and instructional videos related to courses, dissertations, and research.
  • Instructional videos embedded throughout our website to reinforce the concepts we teach in the curriculum and promote self-directed learning.
  • A virtual appointment calendar where students and faculty can sign-up for a 1:1 Zoom meeting with a librarian for help –– including evening hours.
  • Seamless remote access. From home, simply login when prompted with your MSP Gmail address and password.

We’re excited to debut the new website and encourage you to explore it. We’re continuously improving the site and expanding the content, so don’t hesitate to reach out to us with any questions or suggestions at [email protected]. We look forward to seeing and working with you this academic year.
