You can use the following tools to help you in answering research queries.
The best place for you to support a student or member of staff looking for subject resources is show them how to access Library Online, and to find their Subject page.
If a student would like to find journal articles or reports, you can show them Discover.
DISCOVER@BradfordCollege is our online search tool and is a quick and easy way to search the College Library’s resources, print and electronic, and find full text information. DISCOVER is a bit like using Google but the results are higher quality.
Show the student the links to Discover on the home page of our Library Online guide.
Students will often ask for books on their reading list.
One quick way to help is to show students how to find their reading lists online, which will give real time information on the location of an item, whether it is in stock or on loan, and whether it is available as an e-book.
There are three ways to find reading lists:
1. Go to the Library Online subject page and look for the link to reading lists
2. Go to the Library Catalogue. You can then search for one of the books on the reading list. Under the title of the most recent edition, you will see a link to the reading list. Click on this to see the full list.
3. Go to the Library Catalogue. Click on Lists and then click on Public Lists. All the reading lists are listed alphabetically. If the student knows the name of their degree and course, you can find their reading list here.
If a student only wants links to online books, the best way to find these is via the Library Catalogue which can be found at librarycatalogue.bradfordcollege.ac.uk.
Advise students to search for their key terms, and then go to the Refine Your Search options and choose Item Types and E-Books.
For more information on using E-Books including accessibility, direct students to the Library Online guide to e-books at https://library.bradfordcollege.ac.uk/ebooks.
