Finding Materials in the Library

Libraries are information warehouses. Because they contain so many items, libraries have basic rules that group similar items into collections. Once library users know how to "work the system," they can go to any library and find what they need. Below are some links to information to help you navigate the library.

  • Lakeland Library has created a How Libraries Work guide to print out.

  • Browsing the Shelves by Subject A handy chart that shows where each subject area can be found on the library shelves. For example, NA is the area for Architecture. Books in the circulating collection, the reference collection and the media collection on architecture will all be found in the NAs.

  • Reading Call Numbers How to locate an item on the library shelves.

  • Library Lingo A list of library terminology helpful in learning to use the library.

Research Guides

  • Journals and Magazines How to identify and determine when to use a scholarly journal instead of a popular magazine.

  • Evaluating Sources How to evaluate the quality of information before including it in your paper.

  • Point of View How words and data are used indicates the bias of a source - an important aspect for evaluating a meterials worth.

  • Research Tech Tips The Information Age computer skills you need: technical questions about printing, saving and emailing articles from databases, opening online documents (Blackboard), jump drives, scanners, basic copy and pasting skils and printing in the library.

  • Web Search Tips Save time, effort AND get the best results by using the Lakeland Library's web search tips.
