5 Things To Do Now at The Library

Make the most of your semester by doing these five things at the Library:


1) Add us to your contacts: You can text us, phone us, email us, chat with us, or even talk to us face-to-face. Add our information to your contact list so you can contact us as soon as you have a research question. Or, you can connect with us via social media!

2) Schedule a research consultation with your subject specialist: When you get your first research assignment, schedule an appointment with your subject specialist. He or she can show you how to search the Library’s millions of resources effectively and point you in the direction of the best resources for your topic. Want immediate assistance? Explore our online research guides with the best resources on every topic, from agriculture to Yellowstone.

3) Sign up for a group study room: The Library’s has group study rooms you can use to collaborate on projects, watch videos, or study with friends. Sign up now to use a rooms for up to 2 hours per day! And don’t forget that you can borrow any equipment you need in addition to what’s already in these rooms.

4) Make a playlist: What are your goals this year? Do you want to be a PowerPoint wizard, become an amazing public speaker, or budget with Excel? Log in to to find thousands of professional video tutorials on technology and professional skills. Create a playlist of the classes you want to take and work on them whenever you have time!

5) Explore Special Collections: Did you know that the Library has a large collection of rare and unique materials in Special Collections on the library’s 2nd floor, which are available to anyone for research? If you’re taking a class requiring original research this semester, take a few moments to explore Special Collections, which includes the University’s Archives, and information in areas such as Montana History, Trout and Salmon, Native Americans, Agriculture and Ranching, and much more! And, you can always study in Special Collections, even if you’re not using any of their other resources. It’s nice and quiet there!

New Database: TAIR (The Arabidopsis Information Resource)

TAIR The MSU Library recently subscribed to TAIR (The Arabidopsis Information Resource), a database of genetic and molecular biology data for the model higher plant Arabidopsis thaliana. Previously funded by an NSF grant, TAIR is now managed by the nonprofit, Phoenix Bioninformatics Corporation. Data available from TAIR includes the complete genome sequence along with gene structure, gene product information, gene expression, DNA and seed stocks, genome maps, genetic and physical markers, publications, and information about the Arabidopsis research community.

This library resource is available to unlimited users via networked computers on the MSU campus in Bozeman and via the proxy server: .  Please direct questions or comments to Kirsten DeMoss, Electronic Resources & Discovery Services Librarian, kirsten.demoss(at) 

New Database: ACSESS Digital Library


The ACSESS Digital Library is a complete collection of all content published by the Alliance of Crop, Soil and Environmental Science Societies (ACSESS), comprising the American Society of Agronomy, Crop Science Society of America, and Soil Science Society of America. With coverage of the agricultural sciences, including support of our food supply, environmental science and climate change, and crop/plant health and productivity, you can search, browse, research, comment on, and share the ACSESS Digital Library literature in one convenient place. The ACSESS Digital Library includes the full text of all journals beginning in 1907 in addition to over 300 books, all digitized to the chapter level.

MSU Library Social Media Survey

slide-social-media-surveyAs some of you may recall, we launched a social media survey last year designed for the MSU-Bozeman community. The survey was developed by MSU Librarians to help us better understand social media use and expectations.

Now, we’d like to know how social media is being used currently and how that compares to last year. If you filled it out last year — please fill it out again! If you’ve never completed this survey before, we want to hear from you, too!

Thanks so much for your help!
