Welcome to UVM and the Howe Library! This research guide is designed to support your research for the Final Project: 1.) the group presentation that will be uploaded on the last day of class and 2.) the individual paper detailing the five books you personally chose for your group's fantasy book list and your own personal rationale for each of those texts.
Use your UVM NetID and password to log in to the UVM network through EZproxy before you begin your research, to access the UVM Libraries' licensed electronic resources, such as article databases, electronic journals, e-books, and more. Once you're logged in look for "ezproxy.uvm.edu" in the URL of the web page (e.g., http://library.uvm.edu.ezproxy.uvm.edu/) to ensure that you are connected to the UVM network. NOTE: after a database name indicates a licensed library database, restricted to UVM affiliates.
There are a variety of ways to get help remotely from the Howe Library reference librarians during this time. Have a question? Please ask us!
Contact me directly through e-mail (Patricia Mardeusz : firstname.lastname@example.org) to ask a question or to schedule a time to "meet" virtually for an individual research consultation through Teams. Depending on your specific needs (e.g., not too complex), you may be able to schedule a "chat" session with me.
NOTE: If you want to schedule a "chat" with me individually, e-mail me so we can schedule a time and day. Then use the chat function in my "Profile" box on this page.
If you need real-time help, use our Ask A Librarian chat service below to ask a question. Beginning August 31, 2020, Reference Chat hours are: Mon-Thurs, 9 am-6 pm and Fri, 9 am-4 pm.
Note: If you see a message that says "chat unavailable" during chat "open hours," try refreshing your browser. It may be that two librarians are switching off with one another.
