How to work the system...
Welcome to SAIS! We strongly encouraged all new students to attend a brief (45 - 60 minute) tour of the Library. The emphasis will be on electronic resources (where to find what) and the reserve system (how it works!).
Tours will be offered at the times listed below and limited to 10 students per session. Please reserve a space at the session of your choice by signing up at the Circulation Desk in the Library on the 6th floor.

Progress, thy name is SAIS Library!
The Library's homepage now has a new search box for the JHU Libraries Catalog!
The drop-down menu options include 4 alphabetical/browse searches (Title, Journal Title, Author
) and a general Keyword
If you click on More Search Options
below the box, you'll end up at the Advanced Keyword
search. There is also a link to take you into the Print Reserves
section of the Catalog.
This is part of an effort to make our homepage more of a "working page
." As technology progresses, we hope to offer more time-saving features. That's just an image of the search box above, but if you click on it, you'll go to the homepage
where you can try it out!

The National Intelligence Estimate
Recent news has focused on the release of the National Intelligence Estimate.
It's subtitled The Terrorist Threat To The U.S. Homeland
and was released on July 17, 2007. If you are curious about what it really says, you can read the full text PDF now
. For more information on who produces the NIE and its purpose, see this link from the Council On Foreign Relations.

While the bookmarks you've accumulated online for your econ paper aren't going to be vying for face time at the next Happy Hour, they are, indeed, more tractable when given a chance to be social.
See, social bookmarking allows you to save bookmarks to a registered web site
-- like del.icio.us
-- where you can access those bookmarks anytime, anywhere. Bookmarks can also be tagged with keywords
, allowing you to categorize a single bookmark in multiple ways.
Better yet, if you're in a study group or doing a group project, you can create lists of bookmarks, share them, and even search the lists of other users for bookmarks about similar topics. (You'd be surprised how many folks "digg" Fukuyama.)
