What do you learn in a Library Orientation?

These are the most common questions students ask while they are doing their orientation worksheet:

How do you navigate from one database to another?

What is PDF and HTML?

Which databases are best suited for specific classes?

What is the difference between a library book and an ebook?

How do I cite information from the internet or databases?

How do I know if the book is on the shelf?

How do I access "My Account?"

If you cannot attend a face-to-face orientation, or would like to know the answers to some of these questions, the librarian will be happy to make individual appointments. Email or call 386-754-4357.

Your online Library account

So you need to renew that book? You can do it online right from your home or office computer.
At the library homepage, select Book Search. From that page, you will see a link "My Account" (on top of the page). You'll need to put in the college name, your library bar code number, and pin number.

If your book is not overdue, then you can renew it.

This site will also tell you which books you have out, and when they are due!

Be sure and log out when you are done.
