Your library is here for you!
The library website is located at peddie.org/library. On this page, you can access a majority of the library's databases.
There are some databases, ARTstor, JSTOR, and ScienceDirect for which you will need to make an account while logged in at Peddie. The library staff can do that for you; just email firstname.lastname@example.org, and we will create an account with your email address for you. You will only have to click on the verify email message when you get it in your inbox to get started. If you have any issue getting into any database, just email email@example.com.
- Stuck on finding a topic, the library staff can help. Email firstname.lastname@example.org and we will help you narrow it down and direct you to some quality sources.
- Need a book for your project? The library has over 150,000 e-books in ProQuest, EBSCO, Gale and JSTOR. Need a real book that's in the library? Just send an email and the library staff will scan the pages you need and email them to you.
- Need help with your bibliography? NoodleTools is available on the library webpage. Creating an account is easy. Don't know whether your source from a database is a journal, or newsletter, or original content, etc.? Again, the library staff is here to help you through the process.
If you need help with any library or research issue, please email email@example.com and one of the library staff will be in contact with you. We are here ready to help you.

The Writing Center is here for you!
Thanks to the generosity and spirit of our fellows, we will be open for business beginning this Sunday, April 5. We will continue to be "open" on Zoom on Sunday-Thursday nights for an hour. No DMX slots (obviously). Two tutors will be on a shift at a time, and we will be open for both appointments (sign up sheet here) and walk-in “meetings” via Zoom -- all you have to do is join!
- Sunday 5:00-6:00 p.m.: Mollie Schmidtberger and Jess Cheng
- Monday 8:00-9:00 p.m.: Sam Shi and Arantxa Galvan
- Tuesday 8:00-9:00 pm -- Sayli Sonsurkar and Sara Lougy
- Wednesday 8:00-9:00 p.m.: Neha Sathishkumar and Manya Kaushik
- Thursday 8:00-9:00 p.m.: Uma Mani and Chris Liang
To access the fellows, all Peddie students will have a Canvas course added: "Peddie Writing Center." IMPORTANT: If you don't want to use the Writing Center, you can uncheck the box on the right-hand sidebar of Canvas, and you won't see meeting times. However, if you choose not to do this, you will have recurring Writing Center zoom slots on Canvas.
