New, More Powerful Searching for Articles and More

Monday, May 13, 2013 - 8:30am - Rod Library is now offering a new and improved method to find the information you need for your class assignments and research. Just use the "Articles" tab on the library home page to access the new, more powerful version of Panther Prowler.When you try it out, you should notice right away that the top results are even more relevant to your search than before. This single, quick search finds the best information from almost all of the library's electronic journals and databases, as well as from the library catalog of books, DVDs, CDs, and other physical items.(We believe everyone will benefit from the new Panther Prowler, but for a limited time, you can still access the old version here.)
