Greetings! I hope your semester is going well.
Whether you are new to Carolina or not, I hope you find the online Faculty Library Guide featured below helpful.
Please think of me as your personal guide whenever you or your students have questions about the library.
|Potential problems in the full text from ERIC
ERIC is having to review all the documents because social security numbers were found in some of them. What are your options if you can't get it that way?
1. If the document is older (2003 and prior) and the ED number is lower than ED 483 046, we have it on microfiche in the ERIC file cabinets in Government Information on level 5 of Thomas Cooper Library. You can make a Scan and Deliver request for it from your Interlibrary Loan account.
2. It's possible that the author or an organization other than ERIC has made the document available on the internet. Try searching for it, but don't be surprised though if the only option brings you right back to ERIC.
3. I've had some luck contacting the author and requesting a copy.
4. I'm encouraging everyone to send a message to ERICRequests@ed.gov with the document number so they can prioritize putting the content back into the database.

Now there's an easier way to request items from the Library Annex
Have you noticed a location that says "Columbia Annex" in the online catalog? Don't let that stop you from requesting those items. The Library Annex provides a solution to the overcrowding at our libraries through the use of high-density storage. All the items stored at the Annex can be easily requested online through the catalog. Items can be delivered to Thomas Cooper Library for checkout or, if the requested item is an article, can be scanned and delivered directly to your desktop.
