1) How to look up and take out books In the Library

Firstly, I will show you how to use the library Catalogue to look up a book. Next, I will show you how to make a list of your favorite books and how to find those specific books in the Library.

2) How to Access/Use Online Data Base

Secondly, I will teach you how to look up the Online Data Base at school and home to do research as using the library's online databases is essential when wanting to gather accurate information. This is essential as it will help you if you need information on a specific topic or a variety of topics and it is a good way to find information if a book is unavailable.


1) I have chosen how to look up and take out a book because that is one of the main things a librarian and anyone who takes out books at a library should know. This specific skill is essential because many kids come in and look for a book but do not know where to find it. The library is filled with many books and sometimes without the help of librarians people would be unable to find the books that they need, and no one would be taking books out at the library.

2) I have chosen how to access/use the online data base because this is something Liberians have to demonstrate to classes. Teachers want Librarians to show there class how to use the online data Base because there are so many online sources that may not be credible, and using these data bases is a good place for students to find credible information to use in their assignments. Online data bases are also good because it gives a variety of information on their topic they search.

- Requires words to be searched as a phrase, in the

exact order you type them.

4) Boolean Search Term

- OR: (BROADENS the search)

- Ie: Ear OR nose OR throat

- The more words connected by OR, the more documents

you get.

5 ) AND: (NARROWS your search)

- The more words you enter connected by AND, the

fewer documents you get

- “global warming” AND “sea level rise” AND


6) NOT (Narrows your search by excluding material)

- This is useful when you want to find results related to only one of two commonly related terms.

7) Search Techniques: Truncation Symbols

-Use truncation symbols to retrieve all variants of

a word stem.
