Quick New Way to Access Online Library Databases

The VCCS has just announced that they've added a "Library Services" link to our myVCCS pages. (That is, when you click "My NOVA" to log into Blackboard and PeopleSoft, you will see at the bottom of this page a new option, "Library Services.") Here, you can access online journals/databases subscribed to by NOVA. I didn't find the interface all that user-friendly, but perhaps it would more so when I'm more used to it.

Since most of you have to log into Blackboard daily anyway, and many of you are not working at a campus computer, this library login through your myNOVA page may save you some time--if you use it, you could avoid logging in at the library webpage when you want to access a database.

(And--welcome to the Spring 2009 semester!)
