What About Fiction?

For books to read for fun (and for audiobooks or DVDs), check out the Onondaga County Public Library.  OCPL is the place to go for novels and the latest best sellers.  Petit Branch is the closest to campus, just off of Westcott. There are several other branches all over the city and with your OCPL card you can check out items from any branch.

IDS Project

The Moon Library participates in a dedicated Interlibrary Delivery Services, the IDS Project, with the intent of making more materials available in a timely manner to our faculty, students, and staff, as well as to foster interlibrary cooperation within New York State.  IDS Project memebers include 75 public and private academic libraries, the New York Public Library, and the New York State library (view a list of current members). The Project is based on a strong sense of community among its members and a unified collection perspective.  The major goal of the Project is to continually implement and objectively evaluate innovative resource-sharing strategies, policies and procedures that will optimize mutual access to the information resources of all IDS Project libraries.
