Books in various languages (and of course in English on almost any topic and/or place).

We also have electronic resources.  As usual, you can find ebooks and articles on your topic/place.  Want to learn about Poland or maybe something as specific as the political history of radio in Argentina?  We also have practical travel resources such as travel guides and Mango Languages for developing your skills.  And we have fun ways to help you experience international film, music, and art.
    Examples: ebook --  Herb Klein's A Concise History of Bolivia.  (We have the physical version too.)

First Impressions

Charlie Lovett will speak on Friday, November 14 at 3:30pm.  Born in Winston-Salem, this book collector, author, teacher and playwright combined his passions in the acclaimed novel, The Bookman’s Tale. The deeply moving love story is also a delightful exploration of one of literature's most tantalizing mysteries.  His new book, First Impressions: A Novel of Old Books, Young Love, and Jane Austen was published by Viking in October 2014.

U.S. Flag

In honor of Veteran’s Day, you can hear about the experiences of military personnel first-hand through oral history interviews in Belk Library’s Digital Collections.  Students in Dr. Judkin Browning’s History 3823, “American Military History,” conduct and transcribe oral history interviews with veterans about their military experiences each year.  Veterans in this collection have served in the United States military from World War II through the current War on Terror.  Audio files and transcripts are available for most interviews and can be access through this portal.  Click on the “Select Items from the Veterans Oral History Project” link to see a list of all interviews.  Check back often, as interviews are continually being added.

Students read yearbooks in Special Collections

Sections of First-Year Seminar (UCO 1200) and Expository Writing (ENG 1000) visited Special Collections recently to use our collections and expertise for course assignments. 

On September 29, Rebecca Keeter’s UCO 1200, “Appalachian Music and Dance,” students attended a session led by Special Collections Reading Room Manager Dean Williams about genealogy sources.  The students have an assignment this semester to trace their family genealogies to an ancestor outside of the United States, and from there, learn a dance of that country and teach it to their classmates.  Williams explained how to use the AncestryLibrary database and then the students used the class as a work period to start creating their family trees (pictured).

On October 2 and 14, Preservation and Digital Projects Archivist Pam Mitchem led two instructional sessions for UCO 1200, “Pictures and Stories: Our Place,” taught by Chery Zibisky and David Crosby.  The students’ assignment was to choose a place, which could be and building, area, or landmark, and discuss its history in a research paper.  The students used the W.L. Eury Appalachian Collection and the University Archives, including the digitized collection of Appalachian State Historical Photographs.

On October 10 and 13, Lorraine Harris’ three sections of ENG 1000, "Expository Writing," met with Reference Archivist/Librarian Greta Browning in Special Collections for a work session using University yearbooks (1922-1992, 2004-2006) and student handbooks (1930s-1980s) for an assignment about historical dating rules and social interaction on campus.  Students are pictured above using yearbooks in the Cratis Williams Reading Room.

Graph -- Complaints against colleges triple

Our database CQ Researcher is often a good place to start looking at a topic.  Each report contains charts, graphs, sidebar articles, a pro-con feature, chronology, lengthy bibliographies, and a list of contacts.  They address "hot" topics.

This week's report is "Campus Sexual Assault," by Barbara Mantel.

For more, search "Article Search" and our many databases that will have peer-reviewed research on this topic.

Scopus search results

The Library offers on-campus access to Scopus through November 20.  Scopus is an Elsevier product (like Science Direct), which can be used to find articles on your topic, articles that cite an article you've already found, and articles that cite you or an author you're interested in.  It is especially strong in the sciences, health sciences, and social sciences.  (I say articles, but Scopus has also added records for 75,000 books recently.)  The "Cited by" and citation analysis functions are similar to what is offered in Google Scholar and Web of Science.  We are not likely to keep both Web of Science and Scopus.

It is not currently set up to link to full text of articles, but it will link effectively if we acquire it.

Let us know what you think of this product.

Scopus is not currently available off campus.
