Thomas, Joy
This guide is designed to introduce students to the California State University at Long Beach Library. The first chapter discusses how to start searching for information--types of information sources, search strategy, choosing a topic and finding preliminary information, encyclopedias, and dictionaries. Topics related to catalogs and computers are addressed in the second chapter--the card catalog; author, title, and subject approaches; reference books; audiovisual materials; filing in the card catalog; using information on catalog cards; classification systems and call number order; the Library Information Network; and checking out a book. The third chapter covers periodicals, newspapers, and their indexes. The guide is illustrated throughout and an index is provided. (MES)
