Top Ten Tuesday – 10 Library Resources You Should Know About

It's Tuesday, that means it is time for a list!

Library resources can make your research life easier. I saw a similar list for another library and was blown away that the Tarleton Libraries have even more to offer you! Here are 10 Library Resources you should know about!

  • Tarleton Libraries Online Catalog – Find the books, periodicals, videos, audio books, CD, DVD, etc. available at Tarleton Libraries.

  • Online periodicals by title (SFX) - Find online full-text journals by Title and/or by subject category

  • Databases by Subject - Find searchable journal article indexes and more relevant for your research subject

  • Interlibrary Loan (Illiad) - Have books and journal articles from other academic libraries delivered to you at the Tarleton Library. Articles are often delivered electronically within 24 to 48 hours.

  • Metalib - simultaneously search multiple information resources such as the library catalog, online databases, journal articles, newspapers and selected quality Internet resources.

  • Online E-books – Full Text books available from anywhere 24 hours a day!

  • WorldCat - Find books, media and more in libraries worldwide. Request items using ILLiad

  • Research Guides - General subject, topical and Subject-related guides created by Tarleton Librarians

  • EndNote Web - Create bibliographies in your choice of citation style with a click -- and much more. (You must establish your EndNote account though Web of Knowledge)
