useful library services

DOCUMENT DELIVERY

If the libraries are lacking an article or a book, you can order items using this service.  Delivery time: +/- 2 to 3 days for an article and 1 to 2 weeks for a book.

1.

STUDY SPACES

You can book private/group study rooms here for multiple library locations. 

2.

SUBJECT GUIDES

Subject guides can provide you with a good starting point for research (e.g., relevant databases, handbooks, and encyclopedias).  PACS guide is here.

3.

useful library tools

Library Access (browser extension)

This tool is a shortcut for accessing articles without going through the library catalogue (e.g., if you are using GoogleScholar or a regular search engine) 

1.

Citation Managers

This software allows you to keep track of, organize, and annotate articles you find. It is also possible to use it to "automatically" generate reference lists. There are a number of applications available (click here for more info). I recommend Zotero, which is open source/free and relatively easy to use.  You can test out the auto citation generator here.
