Academic Support: Finding Resources with Dal’s Library Catalogue and Databases – September 23

Finding Resources with Dalhousie’s Library Catalogue and Databases is an Academic Support session presented by Information Management subject specialist Lindsay MacNiff. There are two sessions to choose from: one at 1:00 and one at 2:30. Both will take place in Rowe 4001.

This Academic Support session is highly recommended. It will continue from the introductory demonstration provided during Orientation, offering a more hands-on introduction to some of the resources you will be using as an MLIS student. You will learn how to:

  • conduct effective author, title, and keyword searches in the catalogue and research databases to access print books and ebooks
  • access Dalhousie’s extensive electronic journal collection
  • work from citations in order to find specific full-text articles from databases of electronic journals
  • download, print, or email articles

You will also have time to ask questions about any difficulties you have had so far with the libraries’ resources.
