The Patrick Power Library, and its collections and services, are constantly evolving to meet new areas of research and study across the campus. Initiatives such as the Strategic Research Plan are exciting ways for the University to acknowledge the importance of these new and evolving areas, and the Library is excited to highlight the services and resources provided by the Library that support these research areas. This guide includes access to a number of databases, accompanying subject-specific library guides, and relevant publications by our faculty and students. Please reach out to us about any of these resources. Suggestions on how we can expand our support for these research areas are welcome!
