Goodreads | SJSU SLIS Reads

Attention all future librarians! Who else is on Goodreads and is interested in meeting other fellow SJSU SLIS students? I just joined last month and discovered that there is a SJSU SLIS Reads group. Join me?

Hack Your Program – San Jose State University SLIS (Online) « Hack Library School

Looking for more feedback from other fellow/former SLIS students? Check out the blog by Brian McManus (& comments) at: Hack Your Program – San Jose State University SLIS (Online) « Hack Library School.

And so it begins…again!

Though this is my final year in the SJSU SLIS program, today marks the start of the journey for all new students. As a LIBR 203 Peer Mentor I am excited to share this time with you all!

Linking Google Scholar to Library Holdings

It’s no secret that I love having access to the numerous online databases available from being a student at a university library. Google Scholar is another great search engine for finding journal articles. However, Google Scholar is missing the full access to articles that one can get from being part of an academic institution. That problem can be solved by linking your academic library with your Google account, enabling you to see if the article is available from your library. You can view the tutorial from SJSU King Library here: Customizing Google Scholar | San José State University Library.
