We look forward to continuing to improve the site as we receive valuable feedback from our users."

Some highlights of the site include:

  • An integrated search function, accessible from every page, with comprehensive access to databases, e-books, and print resources
  • A complete outline of the Allison Library's collections
  • A special section devoted to the library’s Puritan Project
