Summon – Looking for a particular date or range?

Date Posted: July 31, 2013

If you want to limit your Summon search results to a particular date or date range it is best to use the Publication Date range tool in Summon rather than typing the date in as part of the search.  So if you want articles on “pet therapy” from 2010 to the present or from 2010-2011 don’t type“pet therapy” 2010 into the search box.  Instead run the search on “pet therapy” – after you get your results screen look to left hand column and either use the bar slider or type in the date you want:

date range

If you have a closing date type that in

date range2

Looking for Company histories?

Date Posted: July 16, 2013

Looking for Company histories?  The International Directory of Company Histories is the place to look!

This multi-volume work is the first major reference to bring together histories of companies that are a leading influence in a particular industry or geographic location.

Each three- to five-page entry is meticulously detailed with facts gathered from popular magazines, academic periodicals, books, annual reports and the archives of the companies themselves. Entries provide information on founders, expansions and losses, labor/management actions, NAICS codes, key dates, ticker symbol, principal subsidiaries, principal divisions, principal operating units, principle competitors and other significant milestones — all peppered with statistics, dates and names of key players.


Electronic Reserve in Canvas

Date Posted: July 15, 2013

If you have used Electronic Reserve in the past or if you are new to Electronic Reserve you have the option to have us add your items to the library catalog (Library Electronic Reserve), Canvas (Canvas Electronic Reserve), or both.

All files authenticate using a myLaSalle login. If you use Library Electronic Reserve (through the library catalog), students will still be prompted to enter their credentials before viewing content. Canvas Electronic Reserve requires no additional authentication once the student is logged in to your class.

How it Works:

  1. Fill Out the Electronic Reserve form found here:
  2. Remember to check the box indicating that the items listed should also be placed on Canvas.
  3. Either print out the form and bring it to the Circulation Desk or hit the “Submit this Form” button at the bottom of the form.
  4. Log in to Canvas with your mylasalle portal credentials.
  5. Head to the course into which you’d like the reserves placed and click on People in the course navigation menu.
  6. Click on the + People button and enter Christopher Kibler’s email address.
  7. Choose Designer as the role and click on Next.
  8. Click on Add Users to allow Christopher access to the course to add the reserve files.

You will then need to direct students to the files, as they can access them in a number of ways. Depending on your course design, you may want to provide links to the files in Modules, Pages, or Files. If you’d like assistance determining which method best suits your course, please contact any member of the Instructional Design team.

We are also able to copy any documents to Canvas Electronic Reserve that you currently have on Library Electronic Reserve.
