10 Things You Should Know about the DNL: Virtual Edition

It's National Library Week (April 19-25, 2020) and we thought we would showcase some things you may not know that the DiMenna-Nyselius Library offers VIRTUALLY:

  1. Free digital subscriptions to the New York Times, Wall Street Journal and Chronicle of Higher Education.
  2. 24/7 chat service. You may have used it but you may not know that after business hours it is staffed by librarians through the Association of Jesuit Colleges and Universities (AJCU) library consortium. Our librarians also help answer questions that come from other Jesuit University students.
  3. Support using citation manager tools like RefWorks and Zotero. These are especially helpful for capstone students, grad students, faculty, and anyone trying to organize and cite a lot of sources. Use the tutorial guide (link above) or make a virtual research appointment to get more help.
  4. Access to old yearbooks, student newspapers, university photos, and other University records in the Fairfield History Online.
  5. Streaming video platforms that provide access to academic films and documentaries, classics, and indie films.
  6. We have a new coloring book! It can be found on the New York Academy of Medicine's 2020 #ColorOurCollections website along with 100s of other museums and libraries coloring books.
  7. People from around the world can download faculty scholarship, through our open access Institutional Repository, DigitalCommons@Fairfield
  8. Browse, read, and monitor scholarly journals across disciplines with BrowZine to make your own digital newsstand.
  9. We have a Spotify account with study music playlists and some of the library staff have created their own playlists too.
  10. Statistics are tracked for everything and we even have a Library Assessment committee. Check out some of our data on our online Impact Dashboard
