New One Search Service
The UM libraries would like to announce that we have a new One Search starting Spring semester 2014. The search box on the library’s website will look the same but when you search, the results will look different. We have moved from Summon to Ebsco Discovery Service (EDS). Ebsco users will be familiar with the new interface, personal settings and folders.
We are excited about the new One Search and look forward to having increased discoverability for our resources. The library will be having workshops to introduce the new One Search. Please attend “Explore the Library with the NEW One Search” on February 5 at 3pm or February 6 at 4pm in classroom 106E to learn more.

Hot Titles and Hidden Gems
Need help finding books on interesting topics? Check out the book display in the Pilkington Room (2nd floor) of the J.D. Williams Library each week for different themes.
Librarians change the theme each week to promote books that have not been checked out much, are new, or are just awesome. So stroll by and see what's new this week. If you like something, just take the book to the circulation desk and check it out!
From Privacy and Security to College Football to War, we have a lot of books to browse this semester. If you have a suggestion for a theme, please email Brian Young at firstname.lastname@example.org.
