Library News for 2009

Off-campus Access to Library Resources

To obtain access to many of the Library's resources from off-campus requires you to login with your NECO email username and password. We provide a generic username and password for access to off-campus resources to adjunct faculty who do not have NECO email addresses.

Since we have to update this password annually, an email was sent this week to affiliated adjunct faculty with the new information. If you fall into this category, but did not receive said email, or you have questions or problems with access, please contact Dan McCloskey at or 617-587-5617.


Goodbye and Good Luck, Jen!

Our Library Assistant, Jennifer Malaguti will be leaving us for a position at Pine Manor College in Chestnut Hill. Her last day at NECO is Thurday, July 30.

We want to thank her for her 4 1/2 years of service and wish her well in her new endeavors.

Good luck Jen!


Discontinuation of EBSCO Databases

Due to the fact that some of the Library's database subscriptions are provided by the Boston Regional Library System (BRLS), there are a few recent changes of note.

The BRLS has discontinued subscriptions to all EBSCOhost databases, most notably Health Source - Consumer Edition and Science Reference Center. These have been replaced by some additions to the Gale group of databases, including Health and Wellness Resource Center and Science Resource Center.

For the full list of databases that the Library subscribes to, please refer to our Bibliographic Databases page.


Repair Work in Library: July 20 & 21

The repairs to the skylights above the Reference Room will take place Monday and Tuesday, July 20 and 21. The Library will remain open, but there will be some noise.

We apologize for any inconvenience.


Trial Extended to July 17

Our trial for the new service that facilitates the process of obtaining the full-text of articles has been extended to July 17.

For further information, and to link to the tutorial we've created, please see the news item from June 5.

Please send your feedback on this product to Kristin Motte. If you have any questions, please direct them to Dan McCloskey, or another library staff member if he's not available.
