  • Study carrels

    Carrels are assigned on a semester by semester basis. The following rules/procedures apply:

    1. You must check out any books you are using in your study carrel. Carrels are checked frequently by library staff and books which are not checked out to the borrower will be returned to the shelves.
    2. Materials such as Reference books that do not circulate should not be left in carrels.
    3. Smoking, food, and beverages are prohibited in the carrels, except for spill proof containers.
    4. The windows in the carrels must be left uncovered so that the carrels can be monitored, especially in cases where the building has to be evacuated for fire or bomb threats.
    5. Do no stick anything to the walls or door of the carrel as this may damage them. Inspections are conducted periodically and the user is liable for repairs due to damage.
    6. Personal valuables should not be left in the carrels.
    7. Murphy Library is not responsible for damage to computers stemming from electrical surges.
    8. Carrel keys must be returned to Murphy Library, Room 111, and carrels completely cleared out by the last day of final exams. Failure to do so will result in a non-refundable fine of $10.00. Anything left in carrels after the last day of final exams will be placed in lost and found.

    Carrels are periodically checked by library staff who report rule violations to the Administrative Office. Thank you for your cooperation in abiding by these rules.

  • New: Journal Citation Reports

    Murphy Library has subscribed to Journal Citation Reports (JCR), a tool that evaluates the influence and impact of scholarly journals in the sciences and social sciences.

    JCR ranks journals according to how often they are cited, how quickly articles are cited, and other criteria. Researchers often use JCR to identify the core journals in their discipline, to learn about those journals, and to try to determine the influence of those journals.

    Connect directly to Journal Citation Reports here, or find it in the library's list of  databases by title and on the library's Resources for Faculty and Staff  web page.
