  • Do you know where are the books which you can borrow in Central Library? Did you see any on your way to the theaterette? There are many collections located at different parts of library. The books collection which you can browse and borrow is on level 3, which is one floor below. RBR (Reserved Books/Readings) books are recommended readings for some modules, and are located behind Loans Desk 1 on this level. (Go through table with students.) Apart from books and RBR, there are other collections on level 5, namely the current and bound journals, reference collection & Singapore-Malaysia Collection. During the 3D tour later, you’ll learn how you can explore the library virtually. (Briefly show students the handout “Browsing the collection” so that they know about the Library of Congress classification scheme that we use.)

      OR is used to indicate that either terms may be present
      NOT is used to indicate that one term must not be present
      Casino AND

    • 49. Build your search:Truncation *, Round parentheses ( )
      Use * for variant forms of term
      Gambl* = gambling, gamblers, gambler
      Casino* = casinos, casino

      Use ( ) to execute commands inside innermost parentheses first
      “social cost” and (casino or gamblers)

      Within Operator (Wx) — finds words within x number of words from each other, in the order they are entered in the search.
      Example: cost w2 gambling would find “Cost of gambling” but not “gambling cost”
