Library Research 101

  1. 1. U S I N G T H E D AY T O N A S TAT E L I B R A RY LIBRARY RESEARCH 101
  2. 2. WELCOME! • The library staff is pleased to welcome you to your Daytona State College Library! This guide will show you how to use the library. • Fortunately, most of our library resources are available 24/7 from any computer with an Internet connection. This means that you can use the library even when it’s closed.
  3. 3. LET’S GET STARTED! • Here are the basics: • You will often have assignments for which you’ll have to use library sources. • The library website is the starting point for finding all of those sources. • http://www.daytonastate.edu/library/ • The next slide is a picture of the library home page. • Our location: • Daytona Campus: Building 210 (the door by the manatee fountain) • Deland Campus: Building 1 (behind the administration building) • Always check the website for our hours of operation, as they change for holidays and summer sessions.
  4. 4. HOW TO FIND SOURCES • There are three kinds of sources available through the library website: books, e-books, and articles. • All three types of sources can be found using the library search tool – the library catalog. • The next few slides will take you step-by-step through using the library catalog to find sources.
  5. 5. FINDING BOOKS • Go to the library home page: • http://www.daytonastate.edu/library/ • Click on “Find a Book, E-Book or Article” • Click on “Log In” in the upper right corner of the screen. • Log in using your Student ID number as your borrower ID and the last 4 digits of your Social Security Number as PIN. • Now your name will appear in the upper right corner.
  6. 6. NOW YOU’RE READY TO SEARCH • Type your key words in the Search box. Do not click Search yet. • In the Limit To: box, use the drop-down menu to choose Books. Click Search. • Choose a book from the result list. If you didn’t have any results, try different key words.
  7. 7. FIND YOUR BOOK ON THE SHELF • Use the Call Number (for example: KF 4800 .Z9 I43 1997) to locate your book on the shelf. • The call number is the exact location of the book on the shelf. Each book has a unique number. • If the shelf was a street and the book was a house, you can think of the call number as the address of the book. • Books are shelved alphabetically by the first few letters of the call number, and are arranged by subject. Once you find one book, the other books on that subject will be nearby.
  8. 8. CHECKING OUT A BOOK • Books with Circulation or Circulation/UCF may be checked out at the Circulation Desk. • You will need your Student ID Card to check out books.
  9. 9. RENEWING BOOKS ONLINE • You can renew your books from your account through the library website. • Go to the library home page: • http://www.daytonastate.edu/library/ • Click on “Find a Book, E-Book or Article” • Click on “Log In” in the upper right corner of the screen. • Log in using your Student ID number as your borrower ID and the last 4 digits of your Social Security Number as PIN. • Click on My Account in the upper right hand corner of the screen.
  10. 10. RENEW YOUR BOOKS • Click on Loans and select the items you would like to renew. Remember, you must renew an item the day before it is due. Overdue items cannot be renewed. • Don't forget to write the new due date in the back of the book!
  11. 11. FINDING E-BOOKS • E-books have several advantages over print books. • They are available 24/7 • The library has twice as many e-books as print books • E-books can be downloaded to your smart phone or e-reader • E-books can be searched • To find e-books, go to the library website and log in. • Type in your search term, then use the drop-down menu to choose “E-books.”
  12. 12. READING AN E-BOOK • To view the eBook, click on View Online at the bottom of the record. eBooks are available 24-7. • You can save eBooks to your e-Shelf for easy retrieval by checking the box next to the title of the book.
  13. 13. FINDING AN ARTICLE • Log in to the library site as before. • Type your key words in the Search box. Do not click Search yet. • In the Limit To: box, use the drop-down menu to choose Articles. Click Search. • If you didn’t have any results, try different key words.
  14. 14.
