We hope you all had a fun summer and are ready to start a fast roll up the undulating hills of academia this year. The Macdonald-Kelce Library is here to help you through college, from Freshman to Graduate.
Here are some tips:
Bookmark utopia.ut.edu on your personal device. This is the front page of the library.
Sign into Esearch when looking for articles in the databases. Log in with your network username and password. Use the same password when signing into the campus computers and MyUTampa to get to Blackboard.
Visit the About the Libraryguide. This guide will answer most of your questions about library services (laptops, lockers, reserves, printing, etc.)
Find a librarian. Every department/college has a liaison librarian. If you need help with your research, stop by the reference desk or email a librarian. We are here to help you.
In case you haven’t heard by now, July 20th is the 50th anniversary of the Apollo 11 Moon landing! You know how it went: “That’s one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind.” Neil Armstrong couldn’t predict the future, but it turns out humanity has made a couple more leaps since then in the fields of science and technology. Where can you browse new books on these topics, you ask with great fervor? “The Library!” yell librarians into the dark cold atmospheric ether.
So stop by the library to learn more about this historic event from the displays and check out a book or two on recent astronautical expeditions. How about this one from 2017: Endurance : a year in space, a lifetime of discovery by astronaut Scott Kelly TL789.85.K45 A3 2017
Posted onJune 11, 2019bylmvega|Comments Off on The Library welcomes the Summer Institute for College and University Teachers attending the Center for José Martí Studies
The Center for Martí Studies Affiliate is a month long workshop on Cuban revolutionary José Martí and the interlocking histories of Cuba and Florida. The Macdonald-Kelce Library provides resources for attendees during the Summer Institute. Stop by and see the Martí/Cuba display, talk to a librarian, and use the José Martí research guide.
Tampa was and is a city of Cuban immigrants. Ybor City in particular, the site of José Martí Park, was a central local for the kindling of the Cuban independence movement at the turn of the twentieth century. Read more about this history by checking a book out of the library and going on a walking tour.
For those of you who celebrate Christmas – Merry (almost) Christmas! To get in the spirit, please join the Macdonald-Kelce Library in celebrating University of Tampa history by visiting our new digital collections at macdonaldkelcelibrary.omeka.net
Peruse the Christmas Cards of UT past, and check back for more exhibits in the future.
If you are in Tampa for the winter break, the Library will be open until December 22, and will reopen on Wednesday, Jan 2.
‘Tis the season – it’s the end-of-the-semester-paper-crunch time! If you are writing a research paper and need statistics and data to support your argument, the library can help you.
Are you a business major or taking a sociology class that requires you to do quantitative analysis? Or maybe you just need one more excellent source to finish off your paper? Check out theDatasets and Statistics Research Guide, easily accessed from the library homepage.
Here you’ll find many free resources that cover governmental statistics and census info, scientific datasets, social surveys and indicators, financial information, and more. You will also see a list of books under each discipline that will guide you on how to use and analyze statistics effectively.
As always, if you have any questions about accessing and using data, stop by the Reference Desk and ask a librarian for help.
