Announcing: New Library Catalog

On Tuesday, March 20, 2018, University Libraries will launch a new integrated library system that will include a new library catalog. The new catalog will improve how users browse, search, and discover materials on library.cmu.edu.

The Libraries implemented its current online catalog in 1995. In that time, standards in web design have changed, technology has advanced, and the needs of users have evolved. It is against this background that the online system has become quite outdated.

New Database Trials

The Carnegie Mellon University Libraries currently offers trial online access to the following databases. These trials are available on a temporary basis only. University Libraries will make a decision about subscribing to these electronic resources based on interest, cost, and usability.

To view permanent additions and changes to databases available at the University Libraries, see our A-Z Databases page.

Review - The Witches: Salem, 1692

The Witches: Salem, 1692 by Stacy Schiff is an exhaustive (and at times, exhausting) account of the accusations, imprisonment, trials and executions of fourteen women and five men. It’s a story we all think we know, but Schiff places us in this world so completely, we can feel the chilly air and hear the howling of dogs at night. Read more of this review on our Back in the Stacks blog.
