2014 Library Survey

Survey marker

Every year the R.A. Williams Library asks for feedback from our patrons about the job we're doing, which we then use to improve our services and resources. So help us help you by taking the 2014 Library Survey! At worst, 5 minutes of brain-shattering boredom. At best? A $150 Gift Certificate at Amazon!

The yearly Library Survey is our best methods for finding out what the Library has, what the Library doesn't have, and what the Library needs, all from the patron point of view--we take your thoughts and opinions seriously so please help us keep improving the R.A. Williams Library by taking the 2014 Library Survey!

Streaming Video Collections

Alexander Street Press Search

While the R.A. Williams Library has more than enough books and journals to sustain the most inquisitive mind, sometimes a video can be worth more than a thousand words. Our streaming video collections are accessible online and full of great content.

The Academic Video Online: Premium collection offers over 26,000 titles on a range of subjects from Health Sciences to Literature and the Performing Arts.

Our second streaming video collection, the Health & Medicine Collection from Films Media Group features thousands of engaging titles, such as The Virus Hunters and Stress, Trauma, and the Brain.

The last video collection is from International Clicinal Educators in which professional therapists demonstrate specific care techniques, like transferring acute care patients from bed to chair and the use of a nasogastric tube.

All of our video collections can be found by selecting "Video Collections" on the Databases by Subject page.

Say what? Get some Earplugs at the Circulation Desk

Yum!

Maybe the slow Russian thunder of Mussorgsky is your thing, or possibly you prefer something a little faster, like the Old 97s? Ahh, wait, you're Old School. Got it.

But when you don't want to listen to anything but the sweet sound of silence, stroll up to the Circulation Desk and grab some earplugs. Just don't chew them because they taste terrible--trust me on this.
