Is there an overall tutorial or sequence of tutorials that are for new students to IUE concerning using the online library system? Thank You.
Sure! We use LibGuides as a gateway to our resources, and they can be found here. A LibGuide that describes basic searching is available here. Click on the tabs across the top for types of information you want to search for.
Most likely, you will be interested in finding journal articles and electronic books. All of our articles are accessed online through the databases in the LibGuides. Article databases range from general knowledge, like Academic Search Premier, to very specific, like the Cumulative Index to Nursing and Allied Health Literature. If there’s a specific subject you’re interested in, click on it in the subject menu to the right of the LibGuides home page. I’d be glad to help you find the information you need.
For those articles that we do not have, choose ILLiad, our Interlibrary Loan program. Articles your request through ILLiad can be sent to you electronically.
We also have some video introductions to these services - this one introduces you to using LibGuides, and this one introduces distance education services. There is also a Power Point introduction to library services here.
Let me know if I can be of any help to you in finding anything.
