    This semester the Library is promoting the many ways Goucher students, faculty, and staff can access eBooks.  The month of February focuses on Gale Virtual Reference Library which is a database of encyclopedias, almanacs, and specialized reference sources for multidisciplinary research.  Users can access over thousands of titles at any time, download pdfs for offline reading, and even use ReadSpeaker technology to read the text.  We encourage you to test it out for your next project.

    Great news!  The Library now offers an easier way for current students, faculty, and staff to connect to the Library's electronic resources from off-campus.  Go to the library homepage and start your research using the Databases link or the library catalog; once you select a resource you will be prompted to sign in using your Goucher credentials (the same ones you use to log into email) and you will be passed through to the resource.  You should only need to log in once per research session.  For more information please see the Off-Campus Access FAQs.  Any questions, please contact Kristen Welzenbach, Digital Systems and Services Librarian, at or call (410) 337-6370.
