For quick access to popular search engines and library resources, check out the library's new toolbar. The toolbar can be installed in your web browser by visiting http://ctulibilus.mylibrarytoolbar.com. The toolbar includes a button linking to CTU's phone directory, and searches for several library catalogs, as well as Google Books, are available in the search box. Ask a librarian for more information on how to make the most of this toolbar.

the library now has a quiet study area. The Weber-Killgallon Room is set aside for quiet study unless it is scheduled for a class or meeting. While I don't expect conversations to become raucous, I also do not believe that the entire library should be kept quiet.The Library provides a welcoming environment that promotes teaching, learning, and research and this sometimes creates noise. Librarians use the space to do instruction with patrons, students use tables for group study, students see faculty and need to ask questions, people see others they know and exchange greetings and information. I remind everyone to be considerate of others, but if you really need total quiet, please use the Weber-Killgallon Room for your study.
