Welcome to the library!
This LibGuide is for the Blazer Summer Research Institute participants, and will help get you started with library research parts of your BSRI project. The variety of projects in progress this summer means that this guide is a starting line, with tips to make sure everyone can engage with resources, and to find help when they need it.
When it comes to library research, there are many things to keep in mind.
This is a list of the some of research areas BSRI 2021 is working on this summer. Ask a librarian if you don't see yours.
How to use the library
Log in with Anywhere Access
Enter your VSU username and password, click through to GALILEO.
Browse through the general subject list to find resources that can help your discipline--not all of these resources are in GALILEO, and some of the sources are quirky--ask a librarian for assistance with the details of using these.
GALILEO is a great place to start--remember to change up search terms, and look for related terms, such as cats OR felines.
Books and more
Check the Continuity of Service links for current information about checking books out.
Interlibrary loan: things from other libraries
If you can't find what you need, or want a book or book chapter from another library, talk to a librarian about Interlibrary Loan. We'll help you get what you need.
