What Did You Learn Today??

We want to know how effective our library instruction is. Please click on the link below and answer the questions. It should not take longer than a few minutes.

To Google or Not to Google?

The Internet has brought a vast array of information to your desktop. The challenge for students is to identify the relevant sources, get to them easily, and critically evaluate their content. Some of the following websites are licensed for UC users only, others are open to all. Those that are licensed will not turn up in a Google search.

This guide will lead you to resources that can help you find material for your assignments. Remember that you can always ask a reference librarian for help.

Quick Links

Connect from Off-Campus or via Wireless On-Campus

Most of the links on these pages go to subscription sources which are accessible from any computer on campus. All campus wireless networks (eduroam, UCLA_WIFI, or UCLA_WEB) provide access to online subscription content.

UCLA students, faculty, and staff can access these sites from off-campus using either the Bruin Online Proxy Server (a simple setting in your browser) or the UCLA VPN Client (a program you install on your computer). To set up an iPAD, follow the instructions for the iPhone. You can also get access through UCLA mobile.

[NOTE: If you are using a Mac, you may need to use Chrome or Firefox, not Safari, to read some of the pdf material.]

Find a Film in the Library

You can look up film titles that you might want to view here in the library. Once you view the film, you can then look for reviews, etc., in the databases listed above.

Research Videos

These brief videos are designed to help you start thinking about your research and organize your approach. If you need more help after viewing them, you can come to Powell Library 220 and talk with a librarian, who will be glad to help you.
