New! Our library catalog now also shows items belonging to our partner libraries in the Marmot Library Network. You can place holds on most items from any library in the network and they will be sent to the Aims Learning Commons for you to pick up. Please know that it can take time to get items from other libraries, so plan accordingly.

The default for search results is ‘All Libraries’. Once you complete your initial search, you can limit to items belonging to Aims Kiefer Library by clicking on the ‘Aims Kiefer Library’, ‘On Shelf', or ‘Online Resources’ tabs below the search box.

To see what TEXTBOOKS the library has for a specific class, use the search box below and change the last dropdown box to either ‘in Course Reserves by Name or Number’ or ‘in Course Reserves by Instructor’.

Description
"Imagine if new knowledge and insights came not just from research centers, think tanks, and universities but also from games, of all things. Video games have been viewed as causing social problems, but what if they actually helped solve them? This question drives Karen Schrier's Knowledge Games, which seeks to uncover the potentials and pitfalls of using games to make discoveries, solve real-world problems, and better understand our world"--Jacket.
