For the next ten weeks, the Virtual Library will be posting a weekly challenge each Saturday at 8 a.m. to test your knowledge of the Library’s online databases. There will be one weekly question involving how would you help students or teachers find the information they need using the library databases.
All LVCCLD Library staff who provide a verifiable answer (the answer may be available in more than one database) will be entered into the weekly drawing for a terrific prize selected from the Virtual Library’s swag stash.
Here’s how to play:
- Go to Virtual Library Notes (also available on Voyager) every Saturday after 8 a.m.
- You have till the following Friday at 4 p.m. to submit your answer.
- Read the challenge question and find the answer in a Library database noting the steps you did to find the answer.
- eMail your answer to firstname.lastname@example.org listing the database you used and the steps used in the database to locate the information.
Here’s an example:
A middle school student is looking for a biographical profile with a picture of the author, Theodor Geisel.
Answer: Database – Biography in Context using basic search on the name Theodor Geisel
