2.Click on the settings wheel in the upper right corner

4.Search for “Coastal Carolina University Kimbel Library”
5.Check the box and press save

Now when you search for articles in Google Scholar, a “Find @ CCU” link will
appear, which will take you to a new page with options on how to access the article for free from the library.

Bamboo Create Pen & Touch Tablets

Presenting our new Bamboo Create Pen & Touch Tablets from Wacom:

All six of these boards are available for check out in the Equipment Room (at the top of the stairs on the Kimbel Library side) and are compatible with all of the iMacs on the second floor of the Bryan Information Commons. Adobe Creative Suites 6 is also installed on these iMacs.

So, if you're a graphic designer looking for a place to call "home" at 3 a.m., drop by and say "hello!"

The Bryan Information Commons is open all-night, but you must check out your Bamboo Create board before the Kimbel Library closes at 2 a.m.

All boards are Library Use Only.
