Students can enter a question in the data well. The questions match on keyword, and possible responses drop down under the box. If the student sees their question, they can click and see the answer. If there is no match the question is submitted to the reference desk. If during open hours, it will be answered within minutes. If the library is closed, it will be picked up in the morning.

Shawnee State introduced a discovery product this year – OhioLINK will be adopting one in the next few monthsThe Discovery Layer allows us to integrate our purchased resources into a “one search” or Google- like search experience.We use Springshare products for our study guides, text, chat, reference statistics tool.
• Research or subject guides allow our librarians to create subject and/or course specific web pages tailored to our students needs • Subject guides are open to anyone, but authentication will be required for licensed resources.
MOBILE SITE & APPSOur library has a mobile web site – formatted for small screens.Students can search for articles, books and email/text a librarianEBSCOhost has a mobile app for both iPhones and Android platforms.
Most of our journal packages allow pairing with mobile devices for quick access and use on the go.These require authentication, which is usually done by email to the device and could require that an app be downloaded to run the platform.
Some ebooks are more user friendly than othersEvery platform offers a text search of some kindSome offer highlighting and Post-it note featuresPersonal accounts and preferences can be set
Records for…. Print materials, microfiche and all physical materials in the collection All ebooks that we purchase from OhioLINK, on our own and free ebook content All electronic journals either from OhioLINK or our subscriptions All of our purchased databases, LCO databases (INFOhio content) and all OhioLINK shared databases
Every bib record in our database has a QR code that is generated from the persistentlink to that resource. If the code goes to a database, it is proxied, and links the studentto the database on their device. Print resources will display the call number and statusof the item.
• QR codes are Quick Response codes that immediately link a person to something.• They are a 2 dimensional barcode that require a barcode scanner or camera (an app loaded onto a device) to read them
At Shawnee we offer access to two citation tools. End Note Web Noodle BibCitation tools help students organize and format citations for research projects in an automated way.All of our resources offer some type of help with citations. Either an export of the data or a formatted citation that can be copied and pasted.
