New Screencast: Obtaining Articles as an Off-Campus Student

January 21st, 2011 • Paul Roberts

We are beginning the process of creating screencast tutorials on how to identify, locate, and access information in our library’s collections and databases. The first of these is intended for students enrolled in distributed learning, cohort, or extension center programs, and shows how to obtain copies of journal articles through the James P. Boyce Centennial Library.

Please contact Jason Fowler with any questions: jfowler@sbts.edu

z39.50 Searching of the OPAC – Update

January 6th, 2011 • Robb Brunansky

In November 2008, we opened up our catalog to searching via z39.50. This capability allows patrons to search the library catalog using third-party software, most notably, reference management applications like EndNote, RefWorks, etc. We recently upgraded our library system, and this change also modified the settings necessary to access our catalog via z39.50. Here are the new settings:

hostname: sbts1.hosted.exlibrisgroup.com
port: 9992
database: SYS01
encoding: ANSEL

We trust you will find this feature useful in your studies. Contact us if you have any questions regarding this service.

The Online Guide to Research

• Paul Roberts

The Research Guide of the James P. Boyce Centennial Library has now moved entirely online. Guides to subject bibliographies, encyclopedias and dictionaries, periodical indexes and guides, and even tutorials on topics such as Boolean searching are all ready for your perusal. We are periodically adding subject pathfinders and will continue to add to the list of online resources weekly. It is our hope that you will find this guide helpful toward your studies.
