Welcome back to class and welcome back
to This Week in Reference!
Topics coming to us this past week include:
- Donald Ivey
- Community profile for Devon Avenue
- Hull House
And, an in-depth look at some conversations weve had via IM, in person, through email, or over the phone:
A student needed
help looking for chamber music scores, specifically for either 2 clarinets and
1 bassoon or 2 clarinets and 1 cello. The librarian walked them through a
search in the DePaul VuFind Catalog. They used the keywords chamber and
clarinet and cello (for starters) and scrolled down to check the box for
"Music Score" in Formats & Media.
A researcher had
found a working paper via Google and wanted to know if the authors had also
published a 'finished' article on the same topic. The librarian explained
that sometimes the name of the work might change from working paper to
published article, so it would be wiser to search for the authors' names,
rather than searching for articles by title. They did, and found a
published chapter - with a slightly different title - in the book: Sage Handbook of European Studies.
