  Library Research Methods (Adapted from Thomas Mann, Library Research Models) Keyword searches. Search relevant keywords in catalogs, indexes, search engines, and full-text resources. Useful both to narrow a search to the specific subject heading and to find sources not captured under a relevant subject heading.   Online and library research each have their place in a good research project. But whether a student chooses to use both or just one of these depends on which has the information the student needs, what resources are most available and what comfort level the student feels for each research method.

Zotero is the only software that automatically senses research on the web. Need an article from JSTOR or a preprint from ? A news story from the New York Times or a book from a library? Zotero has you covered, everywhere. TumbleBooks are created by taking existing picture books, adding animation, sound, music and narration to produce an electronic picture book which you can read, or have read to you. The TumbleBook Library is a collection of licensed titles from children's book publishers such as Scholastic, Chronicle Books, Candlewick Press, Harcourt, Walker.

This will focus your research and allow you to make the most of your time. Bring related book titles. If you already have done some research elsewhere, bring those titles along with you. Even if you already have those books at home, look for them in the library and then look to the right and the left of the book .   It can be a challenge to remain up to date in our ever-changing, always-demanding library positions. It's a good thing, then, that library staff tend to be lifelong learners, and just as good that there are more free training opportunities available out there than ever before. This month brings 95 webinars and one online conference, covering 23 topic areas to explore.
