Check out the The Association for Computing Machinery (ACM) Digital Library.
ACM publishes, distributes, and archives original research and firsthand perspectives from the world’s leading thinkers in computing and information technologies. ACM offers over two dozen publications that help computing professionals negotiate the strategic challenges and operating problems of the day.
The Seton Hall University Libraries are now offering an online retrieval and hold service. With this service, patrons can request a book, CD, or DVD, and pick it up from the circulation desk of the Walsh, Seminary, or Law Library.
The blue “place a hold” button is located on the right-hand side of book records in our catalog. When users click on this button, they are prompted to log in using their SHU credentials, and then to choose where they wish to pick up the item. The item will be retrieved by library staff and held at the designated circulation desk for pickup. Items will be available 12 hours after the request is made.
To request a book from the Law Library, please use this form:

We trust that this service represents another step forward in enhancing the accessibility of the University Libraries’ resources, and we look forward to serving you.
SHU Libraries are delighted to announce that CAS has granted us unlimited access to SciFinder, a major research tool for chemistry and related sciences. No more not being able to log on because the available “seats” are occupied! In addition, SciFinder now integrates well with ChemBioDraw, to which SHU Libraries also provides access.
If you are a chemist or taking chemistry courses, sign up for a web-based SciFinder account. You can find the instructions for accessing SciFinder and ChembioDraw on the chemistry research guide.
During the weeks of August 4-8 and 18-22, 2014 the Archives, Walsh Library, will be closed to researchers so that we can accomplish some work in the vault that we cannot do when school is in full session in the Fall and Spring semesters. This work will help us to improve our service. We appreciate your understanding and apologize for any inconvenience.

The Valente Library continues to acquire materials donated by prominent scholars in the field of Italian Studies. Recently cataloged and shelved on the third floor are books from the library of Dr. Patricia Hochschild Labalme, a Renaissance scholar, who taught at Wellesley, Barnard, and Hunter Colleges, and New York University. She also directed the humanities program of the Gladys Krieble Delmas Foundation. Other parts of her library were donated to the American Academy in Rome and to Kenyon College. Dr. Labalme received a master’s and a doctorate from Harvard. She was the author of Bernardo Giustiniani: A Venetian of the Quattrocento (1969) and numerous articles. To donate to our growing Italian Studies collection, please contact Dr. John Buschman, Dean of University Libraries, John.Buschman@shu.edu
