Welcome! This guide will point you to research resources for a variety of information management topics.

SIM Academic Support Series 2018-2019 #0: Intro to Dal Libraries' catalogue & databases

This is a 20-minute introductory video meant for incoming MLIS and MIM students. The video replaces an in-person session that I have offered in the past to MLIS students. The purpose of the video is to introduce you to the library catalogue and how to search a database. It can be skipped through using the table of contents feature; however, it does contain 3 quiz points and you will have to answer the quiz questions in order to proceed. Please note that students in INFO 5530 are required to watch this entire video; however, instead of watching this version, please log into Brightspace and watch the video from the Class 1 folder. Probably best to watch in fullscreen.
