Transition Your Experience and Skills

Let me help you transition from the tools, sources, and services you used in the university libraries you've been part of so that they serve you here! Set an appointment--you set the agenda, I'll create the online meeting room and do my best to answer your questions and address your concerns.

Topics to consider including on your list:

  • The library catalog, a discovery system;
  • WorldCat;
  • Ejournal finding;
  • Research databases, including Historical Abstracts and America: History and Life;
  • Digital text collections;
  • Online newspapers, current and historical;
  • Interlibrary lending; 
  • Reciprocal access to other Chicago libraries; and
  • Chicago area archival collections, including those right here.
