Help, I'm New!

Tips for new library users:

1. Your DalCard is your library card. Use it to check out books, films, reserve materials, and more. You can also use your card to order materials from other libraries using our Document Delivery service.

2. Start your research using Research Guides. Research guides will help you locate the best books, articles, and other information for your assignments. They are organized by field of study. 

3. Access resources from anywhere. Wherever you are, you can access millions of articles, ebooks, and other electronic resources available through the Libraries' website. Use your NetID to log in to each resource.

4. Check out our Core Skills page to learn more about the type of skills that will help you succeed.

5. Watch some of our online tutorials to familiarize yourself with various resources that will make your research assignments easier. 

6. Ask library staff via Live Help, email, phone, or in person at the service point of any of our five libraries.

7. Book a study room at one of the Libraries or the Wallace McCain Learning Commons if you need a great space to do groupwork.
