And so it begins...

This blog is for anyone interested in the goings-on at the Science-Health Science Library at Ball State University. Specifically, I will be posting items that might interest the science faculty at Ball State but that others might find informative as well.

About the SHSL
The SHSL is located in the lower level (ie the basement) of Cooper Science Complex in Room CN 16 (go to the middle stairwell near the vending machines on the first floor and go down- you should see the library entrance on your right in the middle of the hallway).

As of today's date, the SHSL has about 3,000 books, 250 scholarly journals, 7 computer stations, a public scanner, a public copy machine, and room for about 30 people to study quietly or in groups.

We provide all kinds of services including course reserves (paper and electronic), research consultation, basic assistance with software found on the libraries computers, general or course-specific instruction on library resources and research techniques, and a full-service circulation counter where you can renew or return any BSU Libraries item from any location.
