Research, No Anchovies: Using e-books

Written by Sandra Yaegle, Head of Public Services

This fall, the reference librarians are offering a series of informal workshops that we are calling Research, No Anchovies. The series covers basic resources on the Library website that EVERYONE should be familiar with. The purpose of these workshops is to give participants easy-to-use techniques that can be put into practice immediately to speed the research process.

The first session on September 5 covered OneSearch, LibGuides, the Full-text Journal Finder, and Interlibrary Loan. Twenty students were able to meet the reference librarians, ask questions, and learn time-saving research tips while enjoying a pizza lunch on the house.

As a result of the greater-than-expected turnout of the first session, the next workshop will be held in the Fountain View Room, located inside the Regent Ordinary. The focus will be on finding and using the Library’s e-books. The workshop will take place on Thursday, October 3 from 12:00 to 1:00. Come, enjoy a pizza lunch on us, and find out about the thousands of online books in the Library databases.
