Building a Total Information Network: The Beginnings
The Walden Library is an excellent resource. Nevertheless, it is not an exhaustive or all-inclusive information/research resource. A successful scholar-practitioner knows that not all of the information or research required for a program of study can be found or conducted using just one source. He or she will explore and identify additional information and research resources.
To prepare for this assignment:
Begin searching for additional information resources within your place of work:
Does your place of work have a library? Where is it located? What does it contain? Who is the librarian?
Does your place of work have a partnership with a library? What privileges and services are available to employees?
Peruse the Web site links provided in the Study Notes: The Walden Library and Your Total Information Network (I attached).
Nearby academic libraries-What privileges and services are offered to users not enrolled in that university? What costs are incurred?
Nearby public libraries-What privileges and services are offered, particularly with interlibrary loans? What costs are incurred?
Statewide resources-How do you gain access?
Walden Library’s Document Delivery Service (DDS) What are its policies, benefits, and limitations?
