Forget Google; Ask a Librarian

FORGET GOOGLE; ASK A LIBRARIAN

You may not have known that a skilled librarian is “the first search engine.”

In other words, you can always seek assistance and guidance from library personnel while conducting research. We are delighted to demonstrate how to take advantage of the library’s resources and services.

What is a Call Number?

A call number is a number and letter sequence that identifies where books and other library items are located.

It is similar to an address in that it informs individuals about where to find a book in a library setting. The number is also known as ‘class number,’ ‘shelf number’, or ‘Dewey number’ and can be found by searching the library catalogue.

How do I Find Books on a Particular Topic?

Search the library catalogue to locate books and any other resources in the library.

  • Write either one or two words that best define your subject.
  • Instead of typing long titles, please choose the most effective terms (keywords). If your search yields many results, use the ‘refine your search’ option on the left side of the page.

You can set some limitations if you want to obtain particular results. Pick and apply each one separately.

How do I Connect to TUS WiFi?

Connecting to Eduroam

Using your device, connect to the Eduroam network. The login credentials are their TUS (LIT) email and password for employees.

Kindly look for more information on setting up and configuring the most popular devices.

Can I Access Databases from Home?

Most of our databases are available to users outside of the university. The LIT Library Databases pages links allow you to access the databases.

Signing in with your LIT username and password away from campus allows you to access databases. They’re the same credentials you’d need to get onto a college computer, Moodle, or your college email.

How do I Find the Actual Article When Given a Citation?

When you have a citation for an article that you need to locate, you may utilise the Citation Resolver to find it quickly.

It is possible to enter a citation structured in your favourite style (Harvard, AMA, APA, etc.) into the search engine, and the results will be shown in Discover! The information, such as the author, year, title, volume, journal, number, and so on, allows you to connect straight from one result to another in a single step.

Please note that you’ll not access specific databases since EBSCO does not support them. Some examples are the Arts Collection from ProQuest, LexisLibrary, and the IHS.

If you are unable to locate your item on Discover!, you still have other options:

1. Use the Databases page.

2. Request for it through Interlibrary Loan.

3. Seek assistance from a librarian.

How do I Renew My Books?
