University Libraries Offer Classes to Learn About Library Resources
Let us take you beyond Google.
The library provides you with access to many resources, including online research databases. One way to unlock the true value of library resources is to learn about them and be shown how to use them, which librarians will do for you in bibliographic instruction classes.
Library instruction classes can be a general overview of our website, databases and other resources, or they can be more directed, by drilling down deep into a specific subject or focusing on a specific research assignment.
A librarian will help you learn searching techniques designed to get you connected to thousands of articles you might otherwise have missed. These techniques include:
• Determining the most appropriate database(s) for your research
• Constructing robust keyword searches
• Maximizing the quality of search results via Boolean logic
Librarians can show you how to get to free full text or free copies of articles and other resources through interlibrary loan.
Librarians can also show you ways to find authoritative research websites with the most accurate and trusted information.
If you have any questions or want to set up a bibliographic instruction class, please call the Mortensen Library Reference Department at 860.768.4142 or the Allen Library (Music and Dance) Public Services Librarian at 860.768.4840.
We look forward to seeing you or your class at the library!
