If your NoodleBib (NoodleTools) account asks you to “revalidate”, it is an annual occurrance after August 1. NoodleTools wants to be sure you are a Vol State student and authorized to use NoodleBib through Vol State’s subscription agreement with NoodleTools. The revalidation occurs automatically when you login using either an on-campus computer or remotely login one time through the NoodleBib link on the Library’s web page at http://www.volstate.edu/Library/.
If prompted for a revalidation, you can skip the revalidation process for up to 3 weeks. Why wait? Go ahead and revalidate. You’ll be ready to use NoodleBib the next time you need it, plus you will be able to go directly to the NoodleTools website for access.
Looking for a database to help you find contrasting ideas about a topic? Try searching Opposing Viewpoints in Context. You will find it on the Library’s alphabetical list of databases webpage http://www.volstate.edu/Library/Alphabetical.php. The database is also listed on the “Current Events” and “Persuasive” subject database webpages.
It’s a good idea to search more than one database. CQ Researcher and ProQuest may have the information you need. Happy searching!
Need a textbook? Several instructors provide the Library with a copy of textbooks. The textbooks are “on reserve”, and may be used in the Library for up to 2 hours. The libraries at Highland Crest, Livingston and the Main Campus have textbook titles. You may want to check the Thigpen Library online catalog course reserves for your course since all textbooks are not available.
We hope your semester is off to a good start! Librarians are available to help you with research…
Welcome to a new semester! The Thigpen Library has a different look on the web. See the changes… http://www.volstate.edu/library. We hope it will be easier to find books, articles, videos and research help online.
