Thanks to our colleagues at the Law Library, all students, faculty, and staff now have access to Westlaw Campus Research. This database provides access to all federal and states cases; federal statutes and regulations; news sources; law journals; and business content to include Hoover’s Company Records, SEC filings, and a Company Investigator tool.
Do you have your UMass Pass ID (i.e., your student ID)? If not, please consider registering for one. You’ll find instructions at https://www.umassd.edu/umasspass. You can also contact the UMass Pass Office at 508-999-8134 or email@example.com.
Recently, we’ve received several questions from students unable to sign in to our catalog (also known as Primo). In all cases, these students had not yet registered for their UMass Pass.
New students typically get their UMass Pass IDs when they come to campus. Of course, this semester most students are working remotely and many have not yet applied for their IDs. If you’re one of these students, please consider getting your ID.
When you register for a UMass Pass, you will automatically get a library account. This will allow you check out physical materials from the library and to sign in to the library’s catalog. You’ll be able to manage your library account and to submit interlibrary loan and document delivery requests using a link in the catalog.
If you have questions about accessing library resources, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you have a book or other item currently checked-out that was due back to the Carney Library between March 6th and September 10th, the new due date is September 11, 2020.
When UMass Dartmouth moved to remote learning, the Carney Library initially moved due dates to June 1st. We realize that this is not realistic for many in our community and have therefore moved the due dates until after the new semester begins.
If you have questions, please call 508-999-8750 or email email@example.com.
If you wish to visit the library in person, you can find our up-to-date hours on our website at https://schedule.lib.umassd.edu/hours/

“To address our unprecedented global and immediate need for access to reading and research materials, as of today, March 24, 2020, the Internet Archive will suspend waitlists for the 1.4 million (and growing) books in our lending library by creating a National Emergency Library to serve the nation’s displaced learners. This suspension will run through June 30, 2020, or the end of the US national emergency, whichever is later.
During the waitlist suspension, users will be able to borrow books from the National Emergency Library without joining a waitlist, ensuring that students will have access to assigned readings and library materials that the Internet Archive has digitized for the remainder of the US academic calendar, and that people who cannot physically access their local libraries because of closure or self-quarantine can continue to read and thrive during this time of crisis, keeping themselves and others safe. ”
The Claire T. Carney librarians have secured trial access to several resources we hope will support our Spring 2020 classes. Any additional trials will be announced in future posts. Please send any feedback to Susan Raidy-Klein, Collection Development and Acquisitions Librarian.
Academic Search Ultimate (EBSCO) offers access to combination of academic journals, magazines, periodicals, reports, books and videos serving higher education and research in the sciences, social sciences and humanities, including the global perspective from international full text journals and Associated Press videos from 1930-present.
Academic Video Online (ProQuest) includes a wide variety of curriculum-related video materials including documentaries, interviews, feature films, performances, news programs and newsreels, demonstrations, and raw footage.
eBook Academic Collection (EBSCO) contains more than 100 subjects related to high-interest disciplines, including business, humanities, medicine, technology, and many more.
Hearings Prospective 2011-forward (ProQuest) is a collection of Congressional hearing documents and primary source evidence of testimony by representatives of all societal sectors, including business, industry, labor, education, health, criminal justice, public leaders, community advocates, and ordinary citizens.
History Vault (ProQuest) consists of digitized manuscripts, archival materials and historical periodicals for research of United States history 1636-1996. Five subject collections of primary source and multi-media materials cover American history from slave trade of the British colonies through ensuing struggles for civil rights, political reform, unions and international relations of the 20th century.
R2 Digital Library (Rittenhouse) “The R2 Digital Library is a web based database available from Rittenhouse Book Distributors. It offers fully integrated and searchable medical, nursing and allied health source book content from key health science publishers, on a web based platform.”
The library is hosting trial access to JoVE Science Education Library through December 15, 2019. JoVE is a unique STEM video collection that demonstrates fundamental concepts and techniques of biology, chemistry and bioengineering in easy-to-understand videos and text. Please share comments on your JoVE user experience with Sue Raidy-Klein, Librarian for Collections & Acquisitions email@example.com.
The library’s trial includes access to the following collections:
The Claire T. Carney Library invites you to come take a look at the Read & Return collection, which is located in the Library Living Room and the 2nd floor lecture room hallway. These books are donated to us for students–and the rest of the UMassD Community. You simply take a book, read it, then return the book once you are finished. There is no formal “check out” required. (Nor are there any late fees!) Books include popular fiction titles as well as a variety of nonfiction titles. There’s something for everyone.
The Read & Return collection, however, relies primarily on book donations. For this reason, we ask the Corsair Community to consider bringing in any gently used books taking up space at home so that we can add them to our Read & Return collection.
Genres to donate include the following:
- Popular adult fiction
- Young Adult/Manga
- Nonfiction titles for a general audience
If you have some things you’d like to donate, please bring your books to the Library Circulation Desk. Questions? Please contact Kari Mofford: firstname.lastname@example.org or 508-999-8865.
Did you know that April is National Poetry month? The library is celebrating by hosting a small display near the Library Circulation Desk on the 1st floor. Check out the concrete poetry and borrow any of the materials on display!
