What's New @ Andruss Library

You Spoke: Website

by Katie Yelinek on 2022-03-28T10:22:52-04:00 | Comments

Welcome to the third in a series of posts about the LibQual survey results.  Today we're talking about the Library’s website. 

We got mixed comments on the website.  Some folks said they found it easy to use.  Others said they couldn’t find anything and found the website confusing.  We’re sorry to hear that. This post will mention a few tips on using the website.

A basic way to find articles, books, videos, or other things in the library is the search box on the homepage. Type in your topic, click search, and see what comes back!

Once you get your search results back, use the column on the left to narrow your results.  You can limit to just peer-reviewed (scholarly) articles using the check box, if that’s what your assignment requires.  Other popular options are to limit by date, or limit to catalog only (gets rid of articles so you can find books more easily).

Did your professor tell you to search in a specific database?  Find it using the Databases by A-Z & Subject link.

Did your professor tell you to find articles in a specific journal, magazine, or journal?  Find it using the Publication Finder link.

And remember, you can always ask for help by using the chat or asking at the Circulation Desk. 

If you have questions about the LibQual results, please contact Katie Yelinek.
