The transition to the new library homepage is scheduled to occur on Monday June 25. The structure is significantly different from the current site. Many pages will be directly available from a pull-down menubar that is available on every page. Take some time to explore the site. Comments are welcome.

CIAO – Columbia International Affairs Online – is a continually updated collection of working paper, books, journal articles, policy briefs, etc. It is searchable and browseable. Most of the documents are in .pdf format. Politics, especially matters related to international relations, is the main focus.

To get an idea of the materials you can expect to find in CIAO, see this recent list of New @ CIAO titles.

The growing number and variety of electronic resources provided by the libraries, and the development of new web page technologies, have made necessary the revision of the libraries’ web site. Changeover to the new site will happen this summer. We hope this will give you time to become acquainted with the new structure. Locations and paths to favorite resources will be different; but the drop-down menus available on all new pages will make more resources easily accessible.

Take a look at the new site (still in development) at this link: New Library Web Site
Once the site is complete, the current links from other campus pages, and your bookmarks to the library, should connect you to the new pages.

We will make additional announcements as the changeover date approaches.
