Here are the top 5 things you should know about the Park Library:
5. All are welcome to study here: undergraduates, grad students, non-majors. Even faculty!
W00t! The Park Library website has been redesigned! It's designed to make essential library resources easier to find.
The UNC Libraries recently licensed online access to ProQuest Digital Microfilm. This is a digitized version of microfilm -- it looks just like microfilm but is available online.
We now have online access to the 2010 edition of the Market Share Reporter. This is an annual compilation of reported market share data on companies, products, and services. Both the Park and Davis Libraries have earlier editions in print as well; more information is in the catalog.
Did you leave something in the Park Library? We might still have it! We keep lost & found items for at least 30 days, after which we send items to campus-wide Lost and Found, Room 3512 of the Student Union.
We have a trial to NBC News Archives.
It contains over 10,000 NBC News video clips in all areas & time periods. It includes newsreels from the 1940s, coverage of the Nuremberg War Crimes Trial, coverage of the first day of school in Little Rock in 1957, an interview with Eleanor Roosevelt from 1959 ... and so much more.
The Park Library is tweeting as @JoMCParkLib. Follow us to find out what's new in the library! We also tweet library and other items of interest to current & former patrons of the Park Library.

You can find them pretty easily in the Libraries' catalog (which I call a "search engine for books") at http://search.lib.unc.edu/.
