Check Reeves Button is back

…and better than ever!  Now when you’re searching in your favorite database you can readily see if an article is available full text or in print format from Reeve’s periodical collection.  A new additional feature is the “Request through interlibrary loan” option for any article not immediately available through us.  The article information is pre-filled, so you only have to provide your contact information and click submit.  Any questions, please ask.

citing sources

We’ve all been there. You’re trying to put together your list of references, and you’re not sure how to format the citation in MLA for that article from an online journal with multiple authors that you found in a research database.  What’s a student to do? (And, no, crying and gnashing of teeth are not useful problem-solving strategies . . . in this particular situation.) Simply mouse over “Research Help” on the library homepage, and click on Citation Styles. There, you’ll find a cornucopia of helpful sites about citations in the major style formats – MLA, APA, Chicago, etc. A good all-purpose site to use is the one associated with the featured book, The Bedford Handbook. These resources should help you put the polish on your bibliographies. Good luck with your projects!

ask a librarian!

Are you working on a research paper and need a little help? Ask a librarian. But, don’t just take our word for it. The Washington Post is also chiming in on the subject on their Campus Overload page.
