BookNotes: Spring 2012

The Denver Campus Library's newsletter.

Welcome!

Welcome to BookNotes, the Denver Campus Library newsletter!

The newsletter provides information about: new library materials and services, upcoming library events, research tips, and more.

MLA Tip

Need to create a Work Cited page? Word 2010 has a great feature that helps you cite sources and create bibliographies, and it's easy to do!

Simply use the Citations & Bibliographies tool located on the References tab to enter citation information from your sources. The information is automatically saved in the style of your choosing to a file on your computer.

When you are ready to generate your Work Cited page, go back to the same toolbar, choose the citations you want to include from the Manage Sources box, and then "insert" the bibliography. Within seconds your Works Cited page has been created and inserted into your document for you.

Need an item the Denver Campus Library doesn't own? We can get it for you!

Interlibrary Loan (ILL) is a service through which you can borrow materials (books, DVDs, articles and more) from other libraries that are not available at our library. Service is restricted to currently enrolled JWU students, faculty, and staff.

Movies, Movies & More Movies

You asked for movies, and we delivered!  The Library now has over 1,200 DVDs in our collection, with more titles being added every month. We can tell you like the DVD's too since they are flying off the shelf. This year alone, our DVDs have circulated more than 3,280 times!

We are always looking for movie suggestions, so please send them to the denvercampuslibrary@jwu.edu.

A quick public service announcement: Remember DVDs circulate for 7 days, so remember to return them on time and avoid fines!

Need a Quiet Place to Study?

Sometimes the Library is not as quiet as you may like. We are aware there is not enough quiet study space in the facility, so we have come up with a few options to get you the quiet you need!

Library Lab 4

  • Although this is designated classroom space, the room can be used for quiet study purposes when classes are not in session.
  • A schedule is posted outside of the door, so you can see when the room is available.

Study Room (Academic Center, Room B82)

  • Located directly across the hall from the Library's main entrance, this room can be used for either quiet or group study 24/7.
  • Available on a first-come, first-serve basis.

Conference rooms

  • Departments around campus are making their conference rooms available for students for quiet study purposes.
  • Conference rooms are available in the Academic Center, Aspen Hall and the Student Center.
  • To reserve a room, please contact a Librarian.

Please know we are looking into a variety of solutions for the noise problem in the Library. If you have any suggestions, please email denvercampuslibrary@jwu.edu.
