Your gateway to a wide range of online information resources
Bob discovers "Being digital", a collection of short interactive activities which help him develop essential skills for study, work and life online.
There are over 400,000 ebooks available in the OU Library. This 30 minute session will introduce you to accessing and using ebooks, including encyclopedias and dictionaries. It will also explore some of the tools available to use ebooks effectively.
We will explain why you would want to use a database, rather than a broader search tool such as Library Search, for finding resources.
You will learn how to access library databases, how to take advantage of the functionality they offer, and how to devise a proper search technique.
