The 2011-2012 academic year was another record breaker for the Gordon Library. More visitors passed through the library doors, more instruction sessions were held, and more access was provided to library resources than in years past. An updated library website served as the online gateway to the vast array of electronic databases, journals, and now electronic book collections. The anchor in the center of the new website is a powerful searching tool called Summon. With this tool researchers are able to perform inquiries into huge numbers of sources with a single click and then easily narrow the results and link to many of the items in the collection in an instant. Finally, a suite of online tutorials expanded options for library access and instruction.
