Session Two: Finding Books and E-Books in the Library and Library Tour
This session begins at the Ed Psych Course Guide, on the Books tab. I talk about how the catalog works and how to use it to find books, specifically. I demonstrate how to find books in Search @ UW, pointing out the many features including location, the send-to menu, requests, UB, and ILL. I go into detail about how to read the call number, and how to determine where in the library a call number will be located. Students are then given time to find a book that they can use for their course project, and are instructed to write down the call number. This process is then repeated with E-books.
After this portion, the remaining class time is dedicated to a physical tour of the UWM libraries. I point out all the important resources the library has to offer. While in the stacks, each student is given a call number to find, and brings the book back to me to check. If a student has a call number from the exercise earlier, they are allowed to find that book and check it out.
