Gateway to the WORLD OF INFORMATION Contact us: 937-766-7840 library@cedarville.edu “I learned many new research skills, including (1) how to narrow my search on OneSearch, (2) how to navigate outside sources (such as JSTOR, Google Scholar, etc.), (3) how to better utilize OhioLINK and Interlibrary Loan, (4) how to use bibliographies from one source to find other sources, (5) how to understand and utilize “Subject Terms” and “Abstracts”, (6) how to use SearchOhio, and (7) how to utilize and cite sources such as videos/media posts. I will be using all of these skills for future assignments!” Laura Ullom English/Spanish, Class of 2018 “I plan on using the CINAHL and PUBMED databases. After my face-to-face appointment, I had the opportunity to go home and navigate through these databases without difficulty. I am also currently working on a research proposal paper and I was able to significantly narrow my search based on my learnings during my appointment. My time with the librarian was very valuable and as I progress through my graduate program I will continue to reach out to her for assistance.” Tonya Johnson-Gilliam MSN-FNP, Class of 2017 “At the beginning of my freshman year I made a research appointment. That appointment helped me understand how to use the library as well as helping me with one specific project. Since then I have been able to use the library to research teaching students with special needs, online language learning, and Christianity & the arts. I have found artifacts for education projects and resources for my future Spanish classroom in the CMC. I feel like the entire information world is available to me here. The Centennial Library is my tuition money well spent and supports higher education at its finest!” Samantha Heinrich Spanish Education, Class of 2018 “I have been particularly helped by the research librarians. That service is very nice to have. Also, I am thankful that there are lots of places to work and that it’s a quiet environment.” Leah Snyder Nursing Class of 2019 “The Research Center completely changed the way I prepare to write a paper and gave me the resources/training I needed to be successful.” Jonathan Lyons Music Education Class of 2017 CENTENNIAL LIBRARY CEDARVILLE UNIVERSITY
