NEW STUDENT TIP: Dixson Library; eReserve and advanced Google
If you’re a new student and you’re already enrolled for 2010 we know it can get a little frustrating that you can’t get started until your Units open in early February (the 15th to be precise). Between now and Orientation we’ll be posting podcasts/videos, tips and tricks under the title ‘NEW STUDENT TIP’ to make your transition into Uni-life a little easier.
Here’s a couple of things you can do to get a headstart thanks to the great staff at Dixson Library …
1. e-Reserve: eReserve is the University Library’s electronic reserve database which gives you online access to journal articles and book chapters that your lecturers/Unit Coordinators consider essential reading. This material is available 24 hours a day and can be viewed and printed using Adobe Acrobat Reader. If you need help on how to use the system check out: Help using eReserve. If you’re keen to get started why not onto the reading component of your Units and save some time later on. Simply search for your Unit code (i.e. AFM101) and you can get started.
2. Google Books & Google Scholar: We’re willing to bet most of you are already using Google in some form but as students you get access to a couple of extra bits of the system via Dixson Library. To access, log onto myUNE, click on the myLibrary tab and surf down to the bottom of the page, from here you can select Google Scholar or Google Books. Here’s where to find the search engine:
