... itís a good idea to point out the "Quick Links" at the bottom of Library Web pages. Itís not necessary to spend a great deal of time with these, but students do need to know they are there. Also point out "Ask a Librarian." A suggestion there: if students find that they need in-depth, one-on-one assistance, it would be best to schedule an appointment with one of us.

I have asked the students to write down this list of resources in their notebooks so that they wonít forget afterwards. I also mention that this list is just the tip of the iceberg; if they need other databases, then they should contact us.

A few comments:

First: if students are researching local topics (Corpus Christi or local area), they can search the Caller-Times on Lexis-Nexis by clicking "Sources" at the top of the page and then typing "Corpus Christi" on the title page.

Second: the business databases are applicable because many of their topics will have a business/economic aspect.

Third: discussing off-campus access = good. Remember: Even the students who live on campus (Miramar apartments and dorms) are considered remote users.
