Happy fall quarter! As we find new ways to safely connect with and support each other, DePaul librarians continue to work with students, staff, and faculty to get them what they need to teach and learn. 

Here are a few topics we’ve helped research recently: 

  • Garrett Morgan, inventor of the traffic signal
  • First meeting of the United Nations in 1946 
  • Mentors and school counselors working with high school students
  • Non-pharmacological interventions to treat opioid addiction
  • Storage and donation processes of blood banks
  • Addressing ethical issues within business leadership teams
  • Chronic disease and quality of life
  • Queer life during the early years of the AIDS epidemic
  • Martin Cooper, inventor of the modern cell phone


Additionally, we answered how-to questions like these:

Question: How do I request a book for contactless pick-up?

Answer: Contactless pick-up is a safe, socially distant way to pick up books while the Library buildings are closed. Simply request the items you want, and we’ll notify you when they’re ready. Get all the details here.

Question: I miss I-Share! When will it be available again?

Answer: I-Share will be available September 21! More info here.

Question: My teacher told me to use Academic Search Complete to find scholarly articles for my paper. How do I use it?

Answer: Academic Search Complete is a great way to find full text scholarly articles on almost any topic. Here’s how to get started

As always, Ask a Librarian if you have any questions!
