Ever been to a library information session with your class, but walked away worrying about remembering the torrent of information the librarians hurdled at you? Don’t fear, the library tutorials are here! On the library homepage you can find video tutorials that will guide you through the basics of using some of the most popular library resources. If the tutorials do not cover all the information you need, be sure to check out the library workshop schedule to see if there is a session to give you the extra boost for acing your research assignment.
In addition to library tutorials and workshops, remember to utilize library staff members! We are here to help with research, finding appropriate sources, citation, and everything else that goes along with the research process. We don’t just sit around a read books all day! Our contact information is available from the meet the staff page. Feel free to contact any staff member with questions.
If you are looking for the tutorials, you can access them with the links below, or visit our tutorials page on the library website.
- QuickSearch- overview
- QS: Narrowing or Refining Your Topic
- QS: Citation Tool
- QS: Account Tools
- Academic Search Complete
Coming soon…Opposing Viewpoints!
If you still need help with the databases and it is after library hours, please feel free to use the Ask-a-Librarian service. It is a 24/7 chat that links you with a LIVE person with access to JTCC’s library collections.
For questions about tutorials, please contact Molli Channell at the Midlothian library! Happy researching!
