With two new licenses for e-books, the University Libraries is happy to announce that the Seton Hall community now has access to almost 180,000 e-books, 24 hours a day 7 days a week. These are available through SetonCat and through the main search box (“Search Ebooks”) on the Libraries’ web page. Off campus users will need to give their PirateNet Username and Password to login, and one of the book packages requires an account be set up to fully download the book (but you can print out individual chapters up to 60 pages without doing so). This represents a significant step forward in access to a broad range of titles, and is a wonderful supplement to the other electronic holdings of Seton Hall University Libraries.
Seton Hall University Library is very happy to announce its new document delivery service (called ILLiad – you’ll need to register the first time you use it). This service provides access to tens of thousands of journal titles beyond our own journal collection and a very fast turn-around time: within 24 hours well over 90% of the time – including bound print journals offered through other cooperating libraries. The best part is that you can go directly into this service when you search for a journal and find we do not have it – straight from the index you are using (click “Check LinkSource for Full Text”) or even GoogleScholar (under the “more” link in GS you’ll see “Findit@SetonHall” and that will query our holdings). If we do not have access to the journal, a “Get It” button will appear, and you will use your PirateNet Username and Password to login, and the form will be automatically filled with the correct information. Hit “send” at the bottom, and you’re done – and less than 24 hours later the article is in your e-mail! This is an excellent new service for Seton Hall scholars provided by your library, and its faculty and staff. (And when looking to borrow a book, remember to look in EZ-Borrow first from the Find it – Borrow it link. It is a fast service too.)
