New College Webpage
Palomar College launched its
new webpage on Wednesday July 1st. As part of the College
Website Revamp departments are migrating to a standard template.
This will allow our students and various users easier access to
key college wide resources. Throughout the Summer and Fall of 2015
the library will be migrating its content to the new template.
A preview of the
library's template based webpage will be available later this
Fall. During the development phase
of the page we will periodically ask users for feedback and
suggestions, so stay tuned!
Library Retirements 2015
This academic Year 2014/2015
the Library said goodbye to four staff members. These Faculty and Library Media
Technicians have a total of over 75 years of service to Palomar
College. While we will miss their individual and collective
professional contributions to our students, we are thrilled to celebrate the
beginning of their next chapters in life.
Public Services Media Techs
Kelly and Randy will
additional time near the water once they no longer have to open the
Library doors. Our Technical Services Media Tech
Meredith (pictured above) is likely
to continue honing her artistic skills (e,g, making miniature
books, desiging library bindings, etc.). Technical Services
Librarian Byung Kang will do some traveling and continue
re-organizing to make more time for visits with grandchildren.
We have already had goodby celebrations for Randy and Kelly and
hosted an event for Professor Kang May 18th. Meredith's
celebration was held June 30th.
Library Highlights 2015
Library Faculty Linda Morrow and Byung Kang earned Service
at the Spring 2015 Palomar Faculty Achievement Tea. Associate
Professor Morrow is the Public Services Librarian and has worked at
Palomar for 10 years, the last 6 as Department Chair. Professor
Kang is the Technical Services Librarian and has served students
here for 25 years.
They are pictured below at a celebration for the
recently completed Inventory Project which Ms. Kang spearheaded.
The project results documented that our loss rate is very low,
always a plus for library collection maintenance. In
addition it allowed the Library to identify and replace missing and damaged materials. The entire Library
in the project, after initial testing was completed by Systems
Specialist Bob Call.
Hourly worker Daniel Wanta earned the
Scanner award for processing of 20,000 volumes!
Dashboard - Lessons on Avoiding Plagiarism, Citing Sources and More! !
Dashboard consists of interactive, online lessons designed to help students develop their information literacy skills. The lessons address plagiarism, incorporating outside sources into one’s own work, and the concepts and mechanics of citing sources using MLA and APA documentation styles.
Some instructors will be using the tool within their
classes but students are free to independently work with the 3
modules currently available to enhance their skills.
The most exciting thing about
the catalog is that it allows you to
search our physical and virtual collections
at the same time. From
the Everything tab on the searchbox at the top of the
type keywords, click Go and your list of results will include everything from books or DVDs we own to articles from library subscribed databases. Stop by the Reference Desk if you need help or want to learn more about using WCL.
Some catalog options especially helpful for researchers are:
the ability to link to the catalog record for a resource (Permalink),
a save search button and export of bibliographic information to EasyBib for citation use. You can
even use the My library account tool to view a
list of library items you've checked out, titles you've
requested and any payments made/owed. Click

to My library account.
