Prepare a presentation to the class on the topic of your choice. Use at least 3 sources from the Library.
  • Getting a Library Card Table of contents: Library card Book on reserve Holds Borrowing materials Returning materials Laptops Late & lost items Review    Suzanne is ready to start working on the assignments for her class. She has never used the Library before. But she knows that her library card is also her Student ID card. So she heads over to the Information Desk at the Student Union Building to get an ID.
  • Items on Reserve Table of contents:   Library card Book on reserve Holds Borrowing materials Returning materials Laptops Late & lost items Review   The first assignment was to read a chapter from a book that her instructor put on reserve. Suzanne goes to the Circulation Desk. When someone from the Library staff comes to help her, she must give them enough information to locate the correct book! They will need to know:  Her instructor's name  The course  The name of the book on reserve she wants to borrow. Fortunately, Suzanne wrote down the name of the book she is to read! If she hadn't done that, a copy of her class syllabus might help identify the material she needs to check out.
  • Starting on the Presentation Table of contents: Library card Book on reserve Holds Borrowing materials Returning materials Laptops Late & lost items Review    Suzanne finished reading the reserve book and returned it to the Circulation Desk. Now she is ready to start looking for "stuff" for her class presentation. She has decided to work on a topic relating child crime to violence in the media. She can use the computers in the Library to locate materials. She could also have used her home computer. If she has a hard time finding materials, she can also get help from the Reference Librarians.
  • Holds / Requests Table of contents: Library card Book on reserve Holds Borrowing materials Returning materials Laptops Late & lost items Review   If Suzanne finds something in the Catalog that she would like to borrow but finds that it is checked out, she can place a hold on it. When it comes back in, the Library Staff will put it aside for her and let her know it is available. Placing holds can be done online through the catalog. She will need her barcode number from the back of her ID. She can ask the Reference Librarians to show her how to place the hold.
  • Finding materials Table of contents: Library card Book on reserve Holds Borrowing materials Returning materials Laptops Late & lost items Review   In the catalog, Suzanne found 2 books, a video, and a Government Document. Now she is finding the materials on the shelf. Videos and Government Documents are on the Library's 1st Floor. Books she can borrow are on the 2nd Floor.
  • Government documents Table of contents: Library card Book on reserve Holds Borrowing materials Returning materials Laptops Late & lost items Review    Suzanne found several promising items listed in the catalog. This one is a Government Document. Government Documents, Reference Books, and Periodicals do not circulate -- that is, Suzanne must use them in the Library. She is welcome to copy or scan pages that will help her prepare for her presentation, but she cannot check them out. Luckily, most Government Documents are also available online, so Suzanne might be able to access a digital copy of her document.
  • Checking out / Borrowing Table of contents: Library card Book on reserve Holds Borrowing materials Returning materials Laptops Late & lost items Review   Back at the Circulation Desk, Suzanne presents her Student ID. The Library Staff scans her barcode, and scans the barcode on each item, and stamps the "Date Due" on each item. As a final step, they deactivate the Security device inside each item, so that Suzanne can leave the building without setting off the Security alarm!
  • Returning or renewing materials Table of contents: Library card Book on reserve Holds Borrowing materials Returning materials Laptops Late & lost items Review    The books that Suzanne borrowed from the LCSC Library must be returned in 28 days (4 weeks).
