Pop Quiz: Call Numbers, Searchasaurus, Google, and More

September 9, 2008

Greetings! Here’s a little pop quiz for a Tuesday morning:

  • Do you know what all these call numbers mean and where to find them in the library? JE, ER, JI, J, YA, BIO, E 123.456, REF 123.456
  • Can you construct a Google search that will tell you what information the FDA website has on nicotine addiction from 2000 to 2003?
  • Do you know how to use all the resources at parkcountylibrary.org/research?

If you answered no to any of these questions, perhaps it’s time to schedule a time for some library instruction! I am always happy to do classroom visits or to have classes come to the library to learn some of this stuff, and I can also meet with you individually if you would like some one-on-one instruction. The examples above are just a very few of the things I can teach you. Whether it’s editing an entry on Wikipedia, tracking a bill through Congress on THOMAS, or finding historical photographs for a history lesson, the library is here to help you out. And, of course, we have books! More about them in the next post!
