Do I have to come to the library to use its resources?

The library is not just a physical space. A lot of the resources that students use online are actually library resources. They are things that we have paid for a subscription to, for example, or paid to access the archives. And, it's the mode of access that is changing. So, students are actually accessing the library through internet and getting a lot of the resources there. So, if you need a book that we happen to have [only] in print, you'll have to come into the library. If you need a journal article that is not an electronic journal, you would have to come into the library to get it, but you can, from the comfort of your own home or dorm room (if you have a computer with an internet connection) you can use our library catalogue to find out whether or not those items are in our library, what format they're available in, and, if they're electronic, to actually access the full text of those items. And, besides just having electronic journals the library has thousands and thousands of e-books as well, which is the digitized content of books and full collections of books. So, that can actually be accessed online as well, through the library's catalogue.
