Linking to the Library

Sharing links to library resources (databases, ebooks, articles, and videos) is often not as simple as copying the URL. We have a handy guide to linking to library resources and if you have additional problems, contact Sheila Kasperek at skaspere@mansfield.edu.

 

If students have problems logging into resources, please have them email the Information Desk at libref@mansfield.edu for assistance. We also have information about logging into our various services on our Login Help page.

Librarians by Subject Area

To support the academic programs of Mansfield University, North Hall Library assigns a librarian to each academic department. These librarians help support the information needs of students and faculty for each subject/discipline. They also coordinate the acquisition of materials (i.e. books, videos, databases, etc.), provide subject-specific library instruction, and are available to assist with a variety of other library-related needs.

Feel free to contact the librarians listed below for information or assistance in your subject area or discipline. For general comments about the library, you may also contact the director, Scott DiMarco at sdimarco@mansfield.edu or 570-662-4689.
