ORIENTATION TO LIBRARY, USING THE LIBRARY TO FIND EDUCATIONAL MATERIALS and USING THE LIBRARY TO ACCESS SCIENTIFIC JOURNALS FOR WRITING RESEARCH PAPERS. THIS WILL INCLUDE INSTRUCTION ON CONSTRUCTING CORRECT CITATIONS. Over the course of the next two weeks, you will become acquainted with using the library to access scientific journals and basic library resources and three excellent databases that will aid you as you start looking for more information related to topics that you may be researching. This first lesson revolves around the library catalog. The catalog is a resource that you will use to see what the library owns. You will probably use the catalog to find background information in books or older journal articles. For current research, you’ll want to use one of the databases that are subscribed to, but that will be in another lesson. For now, let’s go over using the library catalog. LSU Libraries Catalog & Website ************************** What is it? The catalog identifies materials in LSU Libraries such as: books, newspapers, journals, magazines, government publications, electronic indexes and databases, electronic books, electronic journals, videos, music scores, cassettes, CD-ROMS, maps and other cataloged items. Collections include materials from: Middleton (main library), Hill (Special Collections), Chemistry, Design Resource Center, and also the Cartographic Information Center (maps) and the Veterinary Medicine Library. It also includes items from some locations that are not part of the LSU Libraries, like the video library in Himes Hall. ************************** How can I access the catalog? A link can be found on LSU Libraries home page ( www.lib.lsu.edu ). Basic Searching is available directly from the home page, or you may click on "Advanced Search" for more options. The following directions refer to the "Advanced Search" screen.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
