Top Ten Tuesday – 10 Library Services you should know

It Tuesday again! Wow how the semester is flying by. I wanted to do a follow up from my previous post The 10 Library Resources you should know and talk about 10 Library Services everyone should know about!
  1. SEARCH for articles, proceedings, abstracts, and .pdfs using the best Article Databases
  2. LOCATE journals in electronic format. - SFX
  3. SEARCH for books, eBooks, journals & AV materials. - Use the Llibrary Online Catalog, or Worldcat.
  4. FIND papers that cite a key reference. Use Web of Knowledge to do a cited reference search
  5. STAY CURRENT with newly-published research. Set up alerts using indexes and publishers' web sites to have new citations emailed to you automatically – Ebsco, ScienceDirect, Web of Knowledge, etc.
  6. Use the available OFF CAMPUS ACCESS to the Library's electronic resources.
  7. BUILD your own DATABASE or BIBLIOGRAPHY of citations and references. Use EndNote to manage references, pdfs and images & automatically format them for papers and theses.
  8. Use our RESEARCH/SUBJECT GUIDES to find the best place to locate information about a subject or topic
  9. BORROW materials that Tarleton does not own. Use ILLIAD our Interlibrary Loan Service
  10. RENEW and TRACK the books you have borrowed from the library using the Library Online Catalog.
