We have a trial of 5 databases on the Iter Gateway until 31st December 2007.

Iter, meaning a journey or a path in Latin, is a not-for-profit research project with partners in Toronto (the headquarters), New York City, and Tempe. Iter was created for the advancement of learning in the study and teaching of the Middle Ages and Renaissance (400-1700) through the development of online resources.

1. The Iter Bibliography - Click "Search a Database" and then click on "Connect to: Iter Bibliography"

2. The John Milton Bibliography (MRTS Online)

3. The Iter Italicum Bibliography

4. Journal: Renaissance and Reformation

5. Journal: Early Theatre & Records of Early English Drama

Sydney Jones Library - Abercromby Wing now open

The Sydney Jones Library is now open again. Go into the Sydney Jones Library through the new entrance in the Abercromby Wing (created from the former Senate House; entrance at the Chatham Street end of the building). Many of the Library's services are now delivered in the Abercromby Wing (taking books out and returning them to the Library; self issue; reference collection; short loan; photocopiers, etc.). Subject Librarians, who can assist you with your research, are also based in the Abercromby Wing.

There have been improvements to the short loan area, which is now open access - you can go into the short loan area and select the items you want from the shelves. In response to user feedback, the loan period of short loan items has now been increased.

The 'old' Sydney Jones Library is now the Grove Wing of the new Sydney Jones Library. Most of the Library's books and periodicals, and the Special Collections and Archives, remain in the Grove Wing. Access to the Grove Wing is through the newly-constructed link building.

The next stage of the Sydney Jones Library Project sees the refurbishment of the Grove Wing. The Ground Floor of the Grove Wing is now closed for refurbishment. For the time being, you get to the Grove Wing from the Abercromby Wing by using the Link at levels 1 or 2.
