Happy Thanksgiving!

Hopefully you will be spending the Thanksgiving holiday relaxing with family and friends, and re-energizing before returning for the final days of the Fall semester.

But, if you're taking some time to catch up or get ahead on your research, remember that you can still access most library resources from anywhere you have an Internet connection.

Use the research guides or A-Z database list to access library databases, and simply enter your Gettysburg network login information when prompted.

BookScan Station

You can try the scanner outside the Browsing Room
Have you noticed the new scanner by the Browsing Room? Musselman Library is trying out a BookScan station until mid-November, and we want to have your feedback. Let us know if you think we should by a machine for the library.

Rather than photocopying a journal article or class notes, help us test it out. Yo can use the scanner and its touchscreen monitor to quickly scan documents and then save them as a PDF to your USB drive or as an attachment (a helpful way to share an article with classmate during a group assignment!).

Please use our comment form to share your thoughts. You can also fill out the paper form next to the scanner.
