Notes on Library Day

Don’t be afraid to ask a librarian! The library’s website lib.siu.edu has multiple mediums by which you can contact a librarian for help including text message, live chat, and email.

When you are researching you should always use peer reviewed, scholarly sources. these can be found either through Academic Search Premier or the Opposing Viewpoints Research Center.

To access Academic Search Premier you must click the “One Search” tab on the library home page. From there, to the left of the search box, there is a link to the database below the first bullet point titled “Academic Search Premier”. Remember to use the filtering options to adjust dates of publication, full text, and peer review settings!

To access Opposing Viewpoints click the fifth tab on the library homepage titled “Reference Materials”. Below the search box is a list of hyperlinks and the Opposing Viewpoints link is second on that list.

You should all have an Ishare account by now which consists of your SIU # as your log in name and your last name as your password. Through Ishare you can order books from any library in the state if Illinois.
