This is certainly the time of year for changes – a couple of weeks ago we announced TLELP. Today, we’re announcing access to WISCAL, Wisconsin’s shared collection for academic libraries. Using the Overdrive software, you can check out a wide variety of e-books and read them on your computer, tablet or phone.
Use your SHSST email login to access thousands of e-books by going to this site. You must have Adobe Digital Editions installed on your device, or you can read it using your browser. For additional help, click here.
The Leo Dehon Library has joined the Theological Libraries e-Book Lending Project, known as TLELP. TLELP is a group of independent libraries that save money by purchasing religious and theological eBooks direct from publishers, to then securely lend those resources, rather than the more usual leasing of content. In similar fashion to print book purchasing, TLELP libraries purchase specific eBooks for their own collections usually allowing one simultaneous user for each copy purchased. Currently, TLELP libraries have acquired nearly 900 unique titles, with many available as multiple copies for all patrons to borrow. Our publishers have agreed to allow TLELP libraries to share their collections with the other libraries in this consortium. We feel this is an excellent service to offer our students, particularly those participating in either the Cor Unum or Adveniat Regnum Tuum pathways for the MA program.
Sacred Heart students, faculty, and staff can access this great resource here; use you SH email login to gain full access. You can view a video introducing this resource here.
Fr. Praveen Richard, SCJ, gave the most recent presentation for the library’s spirituality series on March 19, 2019. He gave us a wonderful introduction to the spirituality underlying Hinduism. Fr. Praveen is from the India District, and is here studying in the English and Culture Studies Program (formerly known as the English as a Second Language [ESL] Program). Here’s a link to the video on YouTube.
