Photos from our Faculty Scholarship celebration

Thank you to everyone who came out on January 8 to celebrate our faculty scholars. It was a cold day outside but those gathered inside the High Library, Winters Alcove – were treated to good fellowship – partaking in the excellence of those who make Elizabethtown College the exceptional institution that it is. Thank you to all our faculty and the staff of the High Library who developed this wonderful event. The display of faculty research will be ongoing for the next year – so please plan to stop by and review the good works.

Google Scholar is GREAT! Did you know that the High Library has partnered with Google?  When you search for a topic in GoogleScholar, you can use the “Journals@Elizabethtown” links to access full-text articles.  Don’t see any “Journals@Elizabethtown” links on the right side of your results page?  You probably need to configure your GoogleScholar settings:

  1. Go to GoogleScholar and click on “Settings”.
  2. Click on “Library Links” on the left side of the page.
  3. Search for “Elizabethtown College” and check the appropriate box.
  4. SAVE.
