James M. Milne Library Offers Trials for Four Databases

James M. Milne library has recently acquired trial subscriptions to four databases: Academic Search Ultimate, Business Source Ultimate, HeinOnline, and Web of Science. These four databases will be available for a limited time only. Access to these databases can be achieved through the Trials tab on the library homepage. A link to a short, five question survey is located next to each database. It would be extremely helpful to the library if the survey was completed after use of one of the trial databases. By completing the survey, we can gather information about the value of the database for our students, faculty, and staff here at SUNY Oneonta. The survey is entirely voluntary. Thank you!

Hoff, Santangelo, Hughes and Byrne to represent USA

Three SUNY Oneonta men’s soccer players have been selected to represent the United States as part of a USA D-3 Select Soccer Team that will tour Brazil. In addition, Red Dragons chief Iain Byrne will serve as the head coach of the men’s team. The trio of representatives who were selected to the team are seniors Kevin Hoff (LaGrange/Arlington), Cory Santangelo (Sayville/Sayville), and Austin Hughes (Clifton Park/Shenendehowa).

 “I am really proud of these three players that will be representing Oneonta and the USA on this trip,” stated Byrne.  “This is a richly deserved honor after their performances that has propelled our team to two Final Fours and a Sweet Sixteen appearance in their first three seasons at Oneonta. This tour promises to be a once in a lifetime experience.”

Hoff started 19 of the 20 games he played last fall and posted three goals including two against Eastern University in the NCAA tournament second round.  He was named to the All-SUNYAC second team.

Santangelo started 17 of 19 games last fall and registered four goals and two assists.  He was named to the SUNYAC All-Conference third team.

Hughes started 22 of 23 games he played last fall and had two assists.  He was named to the SUNYAC All-Tournament Team.

The USA D-3 Soccer tour will run from May 29-June 7.  The teams will begin with an orientation in Orlando before flying to Sao Paulo, Brazil for practice on May 30 and games on May 31 and June 1.

Teams will then travel to Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, for two additional games on either June 3, 4 or 5. While in Brazil the teams will experience educational, cultural and social aspects of Brazilian life through city, school and sports club visits.

The team will be staying on the famous Copacabana Beach in Rio and touring the Christ the Redeemer Statue and Sugar Loaf Mountain, two of the most recognizable landmarks in the world.

The USA D-3 Soccer Teams will also visit sites and venues from the 2014 Soccer World Cup and the 2016 Summer Olympics.
