Welcome to the LibGuide for the First Year Seminar:
Living Lives that Matter in the 21st Century
This guide is meant to help you develop the skills and tools to accomplish your course objectives:
The library (and your librarian) are here to help you! Use us early and often!
Looking for more?
Don't limit yourself to the databases listed above! Do you know what sort of subject area that your research falls under? Try finding a database through the Databases Grouped by Subject page. Pick a subject and you'll be taken to a page where the liaision librarian for that subject has compiled a list of appropriate databases for you to use.
Find books, articles, media, and more at Butler and beyond
A book held by the Libraries will be listed in WorldCAT with the following information:
First, you'll want to note where it is. Is it in the Irwin Library? Or Science Library? Is it in a special collection or on reserve? If you're not sure what the location is or where it is, ask at the IC desk. After that, you'll need to look at the call number: this will tell you where exactly the book is in the library and on the shelf. The call number is like coordinates for finding a book on the shelves.
