February 23rd Webinar: Searching the Discovery Layer

Join host and librarian Mike Robinson on February 23rd at 2pm MST in a discussion about an amazing library resource, the Discovery Layer single search box. Search the Discovery Layer for full-text journal articles, ebooks, conference papers, print books, reports, dissertations, and videos held either by Boulder Labs library or thousands of libraries worldwide. Find the most relevant items by using filters to limit your search by categories such as publication year, format, peer-reviewed, and database. The Discovery Layer can also help in finding the best specialized databases to use for further research. Also, learn the basic features of an item's record and how to save to a list, share, and cite it. If you can't find what you need, use the Discovery Layer to send an item's information, error-free, to a request form using your interlibrary loan account. Register today!
