  • Recap of inductionE.g.s of Book and journal to show them?
  • So now that you know a bit about the resources the library has, we are going to think about where can you find information. So for example, if you are given an essay to write, where would you start to look for information? (Let them tell you - Books, Newspaper, online, Journals,). Briefly explain what a journal is
  • 5-ish minutes – then go to feedback
  • Top link = Countdown theme tune (can start 25 seconds in)2nd link = 10 second countdown (silent film style)
  • Good for: broad/general overview of subjectEdited for quality and accuracyNot so good for:May not be specific enoughCan be out of date
  • Good for:Easy to use/searchAll subjects coveredCan be very up-to-dateMobileNot so good for:No editorial controlUnreliable sourcesCan be created by anyoneMaterial can lack provenanceCan be out-of-dateNot everyone has access
  • Good for:Up-to-dateEditedReadily available (latest copies especially)Not so good for:Can be biasCan be unbalancedCan be sensationalistHard to get hold of/access (back issues)
  • Good for:Up-to-dateSpecialist/focussedPresent latest researchEdited for accuracy/quality (peer reviewed)Lots of referencesNot so good for:Can be hard to locate/accessExpensiveMay be too specificMay be at wrong level
  • Where are the Psychologybooks? (Let them tell you – might have found them already)Does anyone know what the numbers are?Books in various places, e-books etc. Where - How. Shelfmarks as different aspects of subject.Need to use library catalogue!
  • To prove the resources are spread around and they cannot browse!
  • UniHub as the way to access ALL useful information, including Library resourcesNB: If you only remember one thing from today then remember that you can access all MDX library resources by logging into MyUniHub
  • Get them to login. [Use Firefox]
  • Links we’ll be using today.
  • (Can use catalogue on standalone machines in library – just to check holdings/locations etc, no need to login)Little bit about self issue
  • What information will you need to use to find the book?
  • Run through a few live searches – get them to specify what to search from each example on the next slideExamples:Myers. D. (2013) Psychology. 10th ed. New York: Worth.Howitt, D. and Cramer, D. (2011) Introduction to research methods in psychology, 3rd ed. Harlow: Prentice Hall. Greene, J. and d’Oliveira, M. (1999) Learning to use statistical tests in psychology, 2nd ed. Buckingham: OUP.
  • Examples:too vague ‘Psychology’, too specific ‘Myers. D. (2013) Psychology. ‘ (copy and pasting)how to use general keyword search effectivelyImportance of using the catalogue – not all on 1st floor!Subject search – get them to shout examples - to group
  • Get them to shout out things they’ve been interested in and do a few general keyword searches (highlight within record subject headings and linking through from them) Point 3 example: If I am interested in ‘frustration theory’ there are not any books on this. However If I search ‘personality psychology’ or ‘abnormal psychology’ I can find the relevant area and some of these books will have relevant chapters in their contents.
  • Books are arranged by number, and then that alphabetically by letter part of shelf number (author/title)Get them to hold shelf numbers and everyone to shout out and arrange them.
  • Get them each to hold a classmark and the rest of the group shout out to move them left and right into the correct order
  • [Demo on next slide]. Can browse (some) e-books by using ‘ebook’ as keyword.‘Hogg Blackwell Social Psychology’ Or‘Ebook psychoanalysis’ for browsing
  • ‘Sugarman Life span’ general keyword search – show results list – the 2 results are print and eShow what it looks like
  • Little bit about demand and encourage to use eBooks
  • Only other username/password they will need – reminder on screen.
  • Mention charges for overdue requested books - £10 if not returned within 7 days of due date. Work co-operatively.
  • For renewing books.Only other username/password they will need – reminder on screen.
  • Responsibility to renew books to avoid charges.Most reading list books are 7 days
  • Compare to book – no publisher details + vol & issue
  • We will be looking at how to find ‘Articles on a topic’ when you don’t know all the details next week.
  • REMIND ABOUT UNIHUBRemind about Print journals:‘Behavioural and brain Sciences’‘Psychologist’
  • Get someone up and support them in doing a search
  • Point out:The sorts of information provided – today’s training materials (will be under Information Skills)Contact detailsIf there’s time, ask the students to start exploring – e.g. Find the referencing guide or databases have a look for themselves (later) at UniHub pages and Subject Guides – we’ll cover more in 2nd session
  • Mention that they can make appointments through LibGuide and find my contact info (will sort this week)
