Starting Monday, April 12, the content on the web pages for the John W. Hicks Undergraduate Library (www.lib.purdue.edu/ugrl) will be combined with content on the Humanities, Social Science, and Education (HSSE) Library web pages. The new web address for both library locations will be www.lib.purdue.edu/hsse.

The combined website will serve as a portal to collections and services for both library locations and reflects recent changes in the two libraries’ organizational structures and service functions.

Early in the fall of 2009, most of the collections in the Hicks Undergraduate Library were transferred to the HSSE library and other library locations. The Hicks Undergraduate Library offers reference materials, contemporary literature, media and DVDs, equipment checkout, the Digital Learning Collaboratory, group study rooms, and flat screen monitors for collaborative work. The Hicks Repository, Circulation Services, and the Undergrounds coffee shop and 24-hour study lounge are also housed in the Undergraduate Library.

The HSSE library offers a wide variety of general subject collections, as well as advanced resources for students in the liberal arts, education, and consumer and family sciences.

The new combined web space includes research guides for particular subjects, government documents, instructional handouts, floor plans for each location, and a list of study rooms and available computers, among other general library resources.

For questions or comments about using the new site, email hsselib@purdue.edu. Users can also use the Libraries’ Ask a Librarian service at http://www.lib.purdue.edu/askalib/ or by typing in any chat box on the Libraries web pages to ask research questions, get help using resources, or get help navigating the Libraries website.
