About the book:

Learning how to use a college library can be a daunting task. This guide is a research companion designed for students faced with writing their first assignment using the college library. It should also be suitable for use in information skills classes and workshops. The manual covers everything college library users need to know about finding information in all formats available. It begins with using the OPAC and understanding library organization, and moves through essential reference books, how to use periodical indexes to find articles, CD-ROM databases and how they are used in libraries, online databases and how they can help with research, and how to cruise the Internet to find information. The book also includes hints and advice about simplified research methods, tables and figures illustrating results of actual searches, and appendixes covering classification systems and how to document sources.
