One Button Studio Quick Start Guide
The Trexler Library building opened in January 1988, and it was built with funds donated by the Trexler Foundation, the Board of Trustees, foundations, corporations, alumni, faculty, staff and friends of DeSales University. General Harry C. Trexler 1854-1933, in whose honor the building is named, was a local philanthropist whose foundation is dedicated to helping charitable and educational institutions in Lehigh County. The Trexler Foundation has supported numerous other projects at DeSales University, in addition to the library. The 36,000 square foot library holds 150,000 volumes and provides access to over 100,000 electronic books. We have seating for 366 and ten small group study rooms.

Framework for Information Literacy for Higher Education This year we continuing our work to integrate the Association of College & Research Libraries Framework for Information Literacy for Higher Education into our instruction program and our work with faculty. The Framework is organized around six frames, each consisting of a concept central to information literacy and anchored in threshold concepts, which are those ideas in any discipline that are essential portals to ways of thinking and practicing in that discipline. Rather than a linear set of skills and search techniques, each frame prompts questions about what learners will need to know, experience, and do to demonstrate their increased understanding as they progress from novice to expert in the scholarly journey and as information literate individuals.1 This is a new and exciting way of approaching our instruction for your students, and we would like to work with you to bring this new approach into your classroom. Please see our two page executive summary of this approach at the end of this guide. New 2017 Worldcat Search
ü Trexler Library’s new service allows our users to find journal articles from most of our database as well as electronic books, our paper monographs, DVDs and more. ü Not all of our resources are in Discovery yet. Criminal Justice Abstracts and ArtStor are examples of the items not available there yet 1

Incorporating Research Instruction into Your Courses
The staff of Trexler Library would like to assist you in introducing your students to the varied resources of our library that can enrich their course research projects. We can provide demonstrations and instruction in using resources tailored to your specific course during a scheduled class period(s) and online via Blackboard Collaborate. Your librarians are search interface specialists with experience and knowledge of the various electronic databases Trexler offers. We will be happy to host your students in the labs in the library, other labs on campus, or via BlackBoard Collaborate. To provide the best possible instructional services, we will need you to assist us with the following: 1.
Call the Reference Librarians or complete our online instruction request form at http://tinyurl.com/desaleslibrequest to set up a consultation appointment well in advance of the class you would like us to instruct. Because these sessions will be tailored to your specific requirements, the librarians will need some time to prepare their sessions. We will also need to schedule the Technology Center well in advance of your class.
Assign your students a research problem before the session. This does not necessarily have to be a paper, but we have found that library instruction is more effective when the students have a defined research need to apply the material discussed. Our librarians can work with you to create these assignments.
Attend the instruction session yourself. Again, we have found that students take the library session much more seriously when their instructor is present and involved.
Recommend our Reference Research Assistance service to your students. When students consult with a public services librarian, they receive focused one-on-one help with their research projects.
Please call us with your questions and suggestions. If you would like us to do a class within the first few weeks of the semester, please call one of us soon. Debbie Malone, x 1253 Michelle Mrazik, x 1612

Successful Library Research Assignments: A Few Suggestions Well-designed library assignments related to course work are an effective way to introduce students to research. The following guidelines are meant to ensure that students have a positive experience completing your assignments. A. If possible, check with a librarian before giving the assignment. 8
§ § § §
We are aware of the limitations of our collection and can work with you to modify assignments to make sure that students find what they need. Books and other materials do occasionally disappear – we can make sure that resources you may list in the assignment are actually available. We can provide individualized research help through our Reference Research Assistance. We can assist you in formatting the assignment to help students become more information literate as well as identify areas where they may encounter problems.
B. Provide the library with a copy of the research assignment. § §
We can be much more helpful to the student who has forgotten to bring his/her copy of the assignment and can’t quite remember whether you asked for a “biography” or a “bibliography”. We can keep your assignment in mind as we select new materials for the collection.
C. Be specific about the types of materials that are required and whether there are limitations regarding the currency of the information. § § § §
Do students need to make a distinction between popular and scholarly
Are students aware that subject encyclopedias (Encyclopedia of Religion, Encyclopedia of the Vietnam War) can be quite useful, while general encyclopedias are often inappropriate for academic research? Have you indicated your expectations about kinds of resources: primary versus secondary, monograph, reference books, peer-reviewed articles, Internet resources, and blogs? Many students are confused regarding the difference between proprietary databases to which the library has subscriptions (Academic Search Elite, LexisNexis) that are accessed through the Internet versus the Internet in general.
D. Collaborate with a librarian on a problem-based learning session and assignment § §
This year Trexler Librarians are experimenting with using problem-based learning as a method to better engage students in their research. Please contact a librarian to work on developing library sessions and related research assignments around problem situations related to your course subject matter.
Online Research Instruction via Blackboard Librarians can provide research assistance and instruction through your Blackboard course site. This year we have a new “Library Resources” in the left hand navigation bar in your course. The example below is for a general course, but we can tailor these pages for your discipline, your subject related course, or even a specific assignment. From this page, students can link to specific library resources necessary for your course , as well as initiate on online chat with a librarian, book a study room, view a tutorial related to your course, find the library hours and more.
Requests for specific content to be added to this page should be directed to our Public Services Librarian, Jessica Denke at ext. 1443. To request a Blackboard Collaborate session for your course or a subject specific guide, please call or email one of the librarians or use our online request form. https://docs.google.com/forms/d/1L9uF_6t63PDiH1VkHI1at5SnmlOyDZBfdJ7zxUQMb2 c/viewform For additional information on Library Instruction, see: http://desales.libguides.com/libraryinstruction. Subject Study Guides (Help Guides) to Paper and Online Resources In addition to the BlackBoard resources discussed above, your librarians have created an extensive collection of online subject guides on topics across the curriculum (Help Guides), which include suggested databases, reviewed web sites, and reference books and more. Find them from the 10
“Help Guides” button in the search box on the library homepage. Online “Introduction to Research” Guide We also have an “Introduction to Research” guide that walks students through the process of selecting a topic, finding resources, evaluating sources, and citing their sources. Take a look at http://desales.libguides.com/introduction and add it to your BlackBoard course. Research Assistance Program Trexler Librarians are happy to offer individualized research assistance to your students, both by appointment and on a drop-in basis. Students can contact one of us via email at [email protected] or phone at 610-282-1100 ext. 1266 We have found that these one-on-one sessions can provide a great follow-up to scheduled library sessions. Students often feel much more free to ask questions in this personalized environment. Getting extra credit for meeting with a librarian can be a nice incentive! We have worked with EN104 instructors to offer students a few extra credit points if students made an appointment and worked with a librarian on their assignments. Even reluctant students said they learned a lot during their sessions! We would like to expand this imitative offered in other courses. We are also available via “Live Chat with a Libarian.” A live chat box appears on the screen when a libarian is available. Feel free to take advanatge of this service, which is provided the convenience of you and your students. Guide to Help Students Cite Sources
The illustration above describes a citation resource adapted by Trexler librarians from a guide by University of Rhode Island librarians to make it easier for students to understand the reasons why they must use citations to document their research and to provide numerous examples of citation styles. It is available from the library web page via the “Help Guides” link in our search box on our homepage, and you can create a link directly to this guide in your BlackBoard course using the following URL: http://desales.libguides.com/citing/ If this resource is not automatically included to the library resources in the Learning Tool for Interoperability for your course, please call DEIT at x1491. Resources to Help Students Avoid Plagiarism
This guide provides basic definitions of plagiarism as well as online tutorials for students and examples of plagiarized paragraphs. It is available from the library web page via the red “Help Guides” link in the upper right hand corner, and can be directly linked to your BlackBoard course using the following URL: http://desales.libguides.com/avoidingplagiarism Locating Media Resources in Trexler Library Collection To obtain a list of media resources (e.g. DVDs, videos, CDs, audio cassettes, computer programs, etc.) on a particular subject: 1. Type your subject into the search box on the library homepage. 2. When the results list appears, go to the left hand navigation bar, scroll down to the “Formats” area and select the media items you want. 3. The system will narrow down your search to only those media formats selected. \ Video Reservations
ü Faculty and staff may reserve a video to show in class. ü The video will be placed on the Faculty Booking Shelf behind the Library's main desk for pick-up on the specified date. Call Michele Mrazik (ext. 1612) to reserve a video or use our online form under “For Faculty” on the library home page. Films on Demand The library also provides access to the Films on Demand database, which includes a library of over 12,000 licensed videos from producers such as PBS, Films for the Humanities and more. You can show them in your class or stream them online in your Blackboard courses. The link to Films on Demand is available from our database page. Incorporating Films on Demand Selections in Your Blackboard Course There are two ways to include Films on Demand videos in your Blackboard Courses. The steps outlined below will show you how to create a course link to a film or film segments from Films on Demand, using a permalink or persistent URL, and we will also show you how to embed code to display the video itself in your course. Both the links and the embedded videos will allow your students both on-campus and off-campus to access your selection.
Creating Links Step One Once you have located a film you would like to use in your course, click on the title to bring up details about your selection.
Click the “Embed/Link” button in the navigation bar under your video. Scroll down in the box and look for “Record URL” or “Segment URL.” Highlight the URL and copy it. Step Three In Blackboard, go to the “Build Content” link. Then click “Web Link.” Step Four Paste the URL into the URL box. It is a good idea to name the link after the title of the video itself. The film will appear in a new window, if you selected that option. You might want to include the run time for the video to give students a heads-up as to how long they might be expected to be at their device watching the film. After students view the film, they should be able to stop the playback and close the tab/window without affecting the Blackboard course. You might want to avoid embedding the films in your course as this can frequently cause technical issues. Wireless Access in Trexler Library The Library has wireless access to the campus network throughout the building. We have 16 laptops that we circulate to faculty, staff and students for two to four hour periods. Individuals are also able to use their personal laptops if their machines are equipped with a wireless card.

Our online databases may be accessed from any computer on campus. They may also be accessed from home using your MYDSU login. Direct Linking to Trexler’s Online Full Text Journal Articles from Blackboard Courses
The steps outlined below will show how to link to an article using a permalink or persistent URL. To create a link to an article in a non-EBSCO database (e.g., SAGE, JSTOR, Westlaw, etc.), save the desired article as a PDF file, and then insert a link in 16
your course to that file as you would to other types of files. This latter method is also possible with articles available in EBSCO databases, if you prefer it to the direct linking process described below. Step One: Once you have located an article in a library database, look for a permalink or persistent URL assigned to the article. This is usually located in the record for the article, which is accessed by clicking on the title of the article. You need to use the permalink rather than the URL at the top of your search screen if you want to allow your students to have offcampus access to the article. The screenshot below shows a citation for an article entitled, “The Effects of Engagement in Inquiry-Oriented Activities on Student-Learning and Personal Development,” found in the Academic Search Premier database.
To access the record for the article, click on the article title. The permalink will be in the right-hand column:
Step Two: Left-click on the URL in the permalink box to highlight the link. Then COPY.
Step Three: Go into your Blackboard course and choose the location where you would like to place the article link. Click on “Weekly Units” in the left navigation bar then click on “Build Content.” Next, click on “Web link” and paste the permalink into the Link URL.
Copy and paste the article title into the Title box. Add any further information that you desire in the Description box, then click Submit toward the bottom of the screen.
When your students click on this article link in your BlackBoard course, they will see the article record. To access the full text of the article, they will need to click on the PDF full text link to the left of the screen:
Interlibrary Loan (ILL)
Books, Journal articles, and Videos
If the library does not have access to items you need, we will be happy to borrow them from another library.
