OPAC_Coming Soon_eheader_v2.pngCOMING SOON! What’s in Your Toolbox? A NEW INFORMATION TOOL from MTAS, that’s what!

MOLLY (MTAS OnLine LibrarY) has been providing access to the books, documents and journal articles in the Research and Information Center’s collection since 2001. Yes, you read that right – 2001! MOLLY is due for an update and we’re excited to tell you that a new and updated search tool is on its way.

Visitors to the virtual MTAS library will be able to create their own accounts, see what they have checked out, save searches, be notified of new items added to the collections, and place items on hold or make a suggestion for new materials to help us build a relevant and targeted collection.

Stay tuned and look for more announcements soon via this webpage, MTAS’ Facebook and Twitter site.

The Research and Information Center (RIC) serves as a clearinghouse for information produced by and about cities and provides research, reference and survey services. The staff addresses inquiries for information using in-house resources, on-campus libraries, resources found on the Internet, and other libraries across the country. Surveys for MTAS consultants and city officials are conducted to create and collect unique information on municipal government not available from other sources. RIC staff are responsible for the MTAS E-News and posting to MTAS's Facebook and Twitter pages. 

Be sure to follow MTAS on Facebook and Twitter!
