Lakeland Library Newsletter: November 2020

Find all of your latest Library news here!


Welcome to the Lakeland Library Newsletter!  Each month, we will showcase classes, events, and other fun and interesting facts about the Library and our staff. We will also keep you informed of new resources and services that are designed to assist you in your course work, and personal and professional lives. 

Bowl of Serials


Check out print journals!

Magazines can be checked out for one week by all library users. Faculty can receive emails containing the Table of Contents from recently received journals. For example, if an English professor is interested in Poetry the TOC can be emailed each time a new issue is received at the library. For more information contact Cori Tatulinski at 440-525-7455 or

Interlibrary Loan

Stack of books

Interlibrary Loan for Research!

Working on a research paper? Looking into some family genealogy? Can't get a certain book from a local library? Interlibrary Loan can get hard to find books and articles for your needs. Please contact the Reference Librarians and they will help to get that request started. Questions? Please contact the ILL Department at 440-525-7314.


CQ Researcher

A database for current events

CQ Researcher can help support your research projects. It provides in-depth coverage and analysis of current issues in the news. Articles in this database contain topic overviews, pro/con columns, and data that can be cited.
