Before We Get Started

You'll be using a lot of Kraemer Family Library resources while researching your assignments. There are a few steps you need to take to ensure that your library use goes smoothly.


Set Up Your Library Account

You can't check out any books (or request books from other libraries) until you take your ID card to the circulation desk and activate your account.


Install the VPN

You can access electronic resources 24/7 from home...as long as you are logged into the Library VPN (Transporter). Install it on your home computer as soon as possible.

 

Welcome to the Guide!

This guide will lead you to many of the resources available through Kraemer Family Library and will assist you in learning how to use library research tools efficiently and effectively in order to complete your research assignments in this course. The research concepts and skills that you learn will provide you with a foundational set of research skills that you can use and build on throughout your academic career and beyond.

Your ENGL 1410 class will have two library instruction sessions. During these sessions, you will learn how to:

  1. Integrate reference sources into the research process in order to gain an initial understanding of your research topic.
  2. Apply the tools and features of the Kraemer Library Catalog and Prospector in order to locate materials efficiently and effectively.
  3. Employ the tools and features of periodical databases in order to identify and retrieve periodical literature efficiently and effectively.
  4. Apply Boolean operators in your on-line search strategies to produce concise search results.
  5. Distinguish between scholarly (refereed) journals and popular/trade magazines in order to identify articles that are written by experts.
