Library Resources and Services: 

·   Reference librarians are available daily via chat (“Ask Us”) and by email at refdesk@uky.edu. Hours are Monday through Friday, 8:00 am – 9:00 pm and Saturday and Sunday, 10:00 am – 9:00 pm.

·   Our Library liason is Debbie Sharp - debbie.sharp@uky.edu

·  She is available for Zoom consultations with both students and faculty.

 Because it is currently not possible for students or faculty to access the physical collection, the library has been adding electronic resources. We recently purchased a very large e-book collection (Ebook Central’s Academic Complete) that contains more than 182,000 unlimited use titles. In addition, we purchased a University Press E-book collection, which adds an additional 10,000 titles. Overall, the library provides over 1.5 million e-books to patrons, and they are available through the library catalog, Infokat Discovery.  

If there is an e-book that you would like the library to purchase, please contact me directly.   My deadline for purchases is May 1, 2020.

In addition, many vendors have made electronic resources available for free to university libraries and we have taken advantage of these generous offers. These may be of interest:

·   The EBSCO Harvard Business Review E-Book Collection has been made available to UK for free by EBSCO. This collection includes 600 titles, including over 400 monographs, seminal works, and 150 article compilations of the HBR Classics Series.  This collection is available with unlimited user access until May 30, 2020.

·   IGI Global InfoSci-Books contains over 5,300 reference books with over 100,000 chapters of emerging research. There is no embargo of content, and the research is available months in advance of print.
The Media & Communications section alone has over 42,000 books and book chapters.
