  • (Introduce yourself – OR the campus librarian if subbing)
  • I got my bachelors in Pre-Law from Southern Virginia University, and I am working on my Masters in Library and Information Science. I am orginally from Mesa, Arizona, I lived in Virginia for 4 years and then moved to California 2 years ago. I have 2 dogs and 1 husband. I enjoy: soccer, rock climbing, hiking, swimming and of course reading

  • You can find board information from inside-wcui.com as well. This would be a good thing to go over and understand before you get ready to take them.You can find PDFs of the documents you will need and other information like the testing process and sample questions and eligibility.
  • This is our newest addition to the Library. The blog is a way for you to get to know us, provide us with feedback but also for us to give you extra tools. Mondays we feature different strategies to get yourself organizedWednesday we feature different phone apps that will help you succeed. Last week we featured an app to help prepare you for the SPI complete with exam questions and answers.You can find the link to our blog under the quick links on the library homepage! Follow us.
  • USB, Flash Drive, thumb drive….there are many names for this little device. Unfortunately because it is a little device it is often lost or forgotten. It happens regularly where a student saves their project to their flash drive and then forgets their flash drive at home on project day…..Drop Box is a virtual USB. Who has heard of Drop Box before? Play video.
  • The new library system allows students to search for books in our library on campus and off campus. You can complete a standard search by searching subject, title, author or keyword. If you aren’t sure where to search select anywhere and search for a term, it will search through out the entire record for that word and bring anything with that term up.
  • Clicking on the Sign In on the top right corner will allow you to log into your library account and check what books you have out and when they are due, history of books you have checked out, you can change your password, save book searches to your book bag, request books and view your library account information.To sign into your account you will need your student ID number (on your student ID card) and your last name. Also, your student ID number is your way of checking out items from the library
  • We have added a neat feature that allows you to send an email directly to your librarian. This can be requesting an Item, if there is a broken link, if you have forgotten your log in. If you do send an email please allow up to 24 hrs for a response, I may get back to you sooner than that however allow 24 hrs for me to respond.
  • MyiLibrary holds all of our purchased Ebooks
  • All of our purchased ebooks are found on myilibrary.Currently there are over 60 e-books available through MyiLibrary.When browsing myiLibrary you can search the full text of books by Author, Title, Subject, Keywords or Phrases.When you open a book in myiLibrary you can search the book for keywords or topics, you can print individual or multiple pages and you can get citation information on the bookIt is important you get familiar with this site because you will be using it frequently when it comes to doing end of the quarter projects.CLICK
  • There are a lot of Reference Tools available, as well as options to book mark pages, save books you have searched and print citations.
  • This is the homepage of our Database, Nursing and Allied Health. The Nursing & Allied Health database includes thousands of Full Text articles from Books, Magazines and Journals.Along with all that you can also find videos, scholarly articles and dissertations on an arrange of topics.
  • Here is a sample basic search.I entered in the Search box Medical and these are the results.Over 2 million items to search through. Of course you can narrow it down or do a more specific search so you do not have to go through all 2 million items. I just wanted to show you that there are a lot of resources available to you.
  • When you complete papers and projects, by law you are required to cite the sources you used to get your information, otherwise it is considered PLagiarism.Nursing & Allied health gives you a tool that does the citation for you. Like I mentioned before, above the article is a button that says “cite this” once you click it you will get this box. As a medical institution, it is more common to cite your sources in APA or AMA style which is the styles used in Sciences and Medical. Once you chose the format it will appear in the light yellow areayou can copy the citation into your document or write it down by hand.
  • Each quarter you will be responsible for completing project for class. This will include researching and compiling information on an assigned topic. All resources need to be sited without the citations you will be plagiarizing whether intentional or accidental.Lets chat briefly about plagiarism.What is it? The unauthorized use or close imitation of the language and thoughts of another author and the representation of them as one’s own original work, without crediting the author.
  • CLICKWhat is Plagiarism? Many people think of plagiarism as copying another's work, or borrowing someone else's original ideas. But terms like "copying" and "borrowing" can disguise the seriousness of the offense:CLICKAccording to the Merriam-Webster Online Dictionary, to "plagiarize" meansto steal and pass off (the ideas or words of another) as one's ownto use (another's production) without crediting the sourceto commit literary theftto present as new and original an idea or product derived from an existing source.In other words, plagiarism is an act of fraud. It involves both stealing someone else's work and lying about it afterward. But can words and ideas really be stolen?According to U.S. law, the answer is yes. The expression of original ideas is considered intellectual property, and is protected by copyright laws, just like original inventions. Almost all forms of expression fall under copyright protection as long as they are recorded in some way (such as a book or a computer file). CLICKLets See What you know about plagiarism.

  • When you are off campus and you try to access our databases you will get a screen like this. You will need to enter in your Student ID and Last Name to verify that you are a student here. If you cannot access it, please email or call me. This happens sometimes if your register later than normal or transfer, etc.
  • There are some tutorials and resources to help you they can be found under the library tab and help on the website.
  • I encourage you to go home today and to become familiar with these resources and services so when projects and other assignments roll around you know what you are doing.
  • Good Luck and I hope to hear from you throughout the Module.
