Please be advised that the library from January 5 to January 16

For October 2014 we’d like to showcase our three new selections for Interactive & Motion Arts, previously highlighted over the course of last year, but here again together:
3D World is focused on CG artists, covering animation, visual effects, games, illustration and architecture. Each month 3D World analyzes the latest trends, offers artistic and technical advice, product reviews, and behind-the-scenes articles on current projects in the industry.
Animation Magazine covers the animation industry, including all aspects of film and television animation, visual effects, and video games. Articles feature interactive design and software releases from a range of large and independent producers. Editorials cover all forms of animation and stop-motion as well as profiles of the artists behind the scenes.
ImagineFX is a trade magazine for Science Fiction, Fantasy and Digital Artists. Each issue features FXPose galleries from readers, the latest news, reviews, step-by-step workshops and interviews from professional artists.
Be sure to browse these three new journals on display now, along with all the other journals the library has to offer!
One of the library’s summer projects was an expanded and redesigned website! Along with an updated look, new sections have been added including pages for Students, Faculty, the AV department, and Archives & Special Collections. We are still smoothing out kinks here and there, but your feedback is always appreciated. If you have any questions about the new website, please contact us! We hope it makes finding what you need a little easier.
Welcome back! We hope you had a relaxing and productive Summer. We have a few changes in the Library to share with you:
Monday-Thursday: 8am to 10pm
Friday: 8am to 5pm
Saturday: 8:30am to 4:30pm
The journal of the month for June and July is Surface, the American magazine of contemporary design.
Published ten times a year, the magazine provides a rich resource to discover groundbreaking projects, emerging talents, and innovative developments in the worlds of architecture, fashion, art, and design. More than a superficial survey of trends, Surface is the substance of style.
Issue 109, June/July 2014 includes:
Be sure to visit Surface’s website and read about their Avant Guardian photography contest, deadline is July 24, 2014!
This Friday evening, June 6, come see the opening reception and presentation for 5 INTO 1: Philadelphia Sculptors’ 15th Annual Student Exhibition, at The Galleries at Moore. The show includes two Moore recent graduates, and is curated in part by a Moore alum!

With the end of the semester fast approaching, we’d like to take the opportunity to point out a few new (and old) tips when searching for journals and journal articles in our electronic resources.
You can now easily pull up a full list of every periodical the library currently subscribes to as well as those in our bound journals and storage sections. From our library homepage, choose Subject from the search drop-down menu and type periodicals in the search box.
This will return a list containing the subject term corresponding to periodicals:
Clicking on Periodicals will bring up a full, alphabetical list of all the journal titles in the library’s catalog:
Interested to see if any of the library’s journals are indexed and/or are available in Full Text through our electronic periodical databases like EBSCO or JSTOR?
Just click on the journal title to bring up its full record page. If it is indexed in any of our databases there will be a Connect to link underneath the Title and Publication info.
Keep in mind that the detailed record page also shows what physical volumes the library has, as well as the most recent issue we’ve received (if we are currently subscribed).
Clicking on the Connect to link will open up the journal record page for that particular periodical database. (Note: if you’re accessing this page from off campus you may need to sign into the database. See the library’s Moodle page for off-campus login info)
The Bibliographic Records field indicates what date range this particular journal has been indexed in the database (i.e. information like article title, author, publication, etc. available and searchable).
The Full Text field will indicate what date range the database has the full text of the article available for you to read or download immediately. Please note, not every title has full text availability.
To begin searching for your topic within the journal, click on the blue Search within this publication link towards the top of the page, or you can also browse the individual issues by using the All issues menu on the right.
Have questions about searching for journals or journal articles? See our Library Instruction page for additional tutorials, or stop by the library. We can also be contacted via email or by phone: 215-965-4054.
