I. Basics you need to know – the Foundations

1. Interlibrary Loan –
Register to use ILL when you need resources (books, journal articles, conference
proceedings etc.) the library doesn’t have.  Takes an average of 3 days.

2. Connect NY – look for books that we don’t have but are available through the
consortium and delivered to Folsom in 3 to 4 days.  Can use this system if we have a
book but it is checked out.

3. APA Style Guide to Electronic References -
Expanded and updated from the Electronic Resources section of the fifth edition of the Publication Manual.
