Just in time for the American Library Association's Library Week (April 13-19, 2014) the South University Online Library has been updated and redesigned -- thanks to your suggestions and feedback. The new look is sleeker, more user-friendly and more organized. However, the main element is the new Library Search function.
Library Search works like Google; it searches the entire South University Online databases along with the eBook and print book collections at our campus locations across the country. Using keywords, subject terms, author name or title, you can quickly find results from a variety of resources. If you receive a large amount of results, you can narrow them down using the Library Search limiters (online only resources, journal articles, etc.). For more information on using the Library Search feature, watch our YouTube video.
Library Search is only one aspect of our new and improved South University Online Library website. You can find a quick link to the library’s Research Guides in a predominant spot on the website. These guides make it easy to find resources, tutorials, videos, and other helpful information about your topic.
Tabs are located at the top of the South University Online Library website and allow you to access a quick connection with the library resources and services.
With these changes and new functionality, the South University Online Library is excited to provide an easier, sleeker, and more efficient website for its students to use. Current students can access the library via the My Academics menu in the Campus Common. If you have any questions, do not hesitate to contact the South University Online Library Staff.
