Carnegie Mellon University Acquires William H. Putch Archives
A collection of materials from Carnegie Mellon University alumnus William H. Putch documenting his career as the artistic director of the Totem Pole Playhouse has been gifted to the Carnegie Mellon University Archives by his daughter, Pamela Putch, and son, John Putch.
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 It is against this background that the online system has become quite outdated.
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.
Please make note of changes to our hours and technology lending for the holiday season.
View our updated holiday hours.
New deadlines for technology lending:
- Last day to borrow technology - Monday, Dec. 18, 2017
- All technology items must be returned by 2pm on Tuesday, Dec. 19, 2017 (No exceptions!)
- Borrowing will resume Friday, Jan. 12, 2018
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.
