Visit the library and complete the following tasks to help your hall win Rep Your Hall the Penfield Library Challenge.  You may complete the challenge as a team or on your own.  Team photographs should include all team members.

  • Check Out/ Reserves Desk. Stop at this desk located near the entrance on the first floor.  Here you can check out a maximum of 100 books for 42 days. You can borrow laptops and other technology, like portable scanners.  Also, find items your professors leave on reserve.  Items are listed under your professor's name.
Task #1:   Take a picture of yourself & the item required to check out books and borrow technology.
Task #2:   Take a pic of yourself & a piece of technology available at this desk.
Task #3:   Take a pic of yourself with one of the items placed on reserve by Michelle Bishop.
  • Printers & Computers.  Concerned about printer locations and finding an available computer?  Grab a library map (available near the Research Help Desk, first floor to the right of the stairs)Locate the following printer and computer locations.  You are allowed 500 pages per semester/session.
  1. Quick Print Station (first floor, near the stairs).  Skip the log in & system start up.
  2. Computer Lab (first floor, near the men’s room).  Over 50 Macs & PCs.
  3. Instruction Room 1 (first floor, near Research Help Desk).  Find 15 PCs & a printer.
  4. 24 Hour Study Room (first floor, head out of the library, make a right past the Check Out/Reserves Desk, continue to end of the hall).  Find 22 PCs and a printer.  Available 24/7.  Additional entrance from west side of building.

  Task #4: Take a pic of yourself at each of these locations.

  • Your Librarian & Research Guides.  There is an Instruction Liaison Librarian and a Resources Liaison Librarian for most majorsIn some cases, one librarian is both Instruction and Resources Liaison.  Research Guides are the best place to start your research.  Find articles, books, websites, background information, and citation tools for your assignments.
  1. Go to the library’s homepage http://www.oswego.edu/library
  2. Select Research Guides by Subject.
  3. Select the research guide most closely related to your major (if Undeclared, select English or a potential major).
  4. Look for the Instruction Liaison Librarian for that major.  Visit or call the Research Help Desk (315-312-4267) and ask for that librarian’s office number.**
    • **If your librarian is Kathryn Johns-Masten or Chris Hebblethwaite, take a pic of yourself in the Reference Room (first floor, rear right of the building).  Their offices are not easily accessible.

  Task #5: Take a pic of yourself near your librarian’s office.  No team photos.  Individual photos only. (Since there is a librarian for every subject area.)

  • Group Study Spaces.  Get used to working in teams.  You’ll be doing a lot of group work and Penfield has a variety of group spaces.
  1. Grab a library map (available near the Research Help Desk).
  2. Locate the following group spaces.
  • Lake Effect Conference Room (first floor near Lake Effect Café)
    • This room can be reserved, while the others are first come, first served
  • IGLUs or Innovative Group Learning Units (first floor, behind the stairs)
  • Instruction Room 2 (first floor, to the right of the IGLUs)
    • Available when not in use for classes or scheduled events
  • Group Study Rooms 200, 204 & 208 (second floor near librarian offices)

Task #6: Take pic of yourself in one group study space on first floor AND one of the study rooms on the second floor.

  • Finding Print Books. 
  1. Go to the library’s homepage http://www.oswego.edu/library
  2. Enter your intended major into the search box.  Then select the “books only” option.  Then enter.  See example below.
    •   If you do not select the "books only" option your results will also include articles and other non-book items.
Task #7: Select an interesting book from the results.  If the “status” is available then the book is in the building and has not   been checked out.  Write down the call number.  Locate your book in the library.  Take a "shelfie" (picture of yourself in the shelves with your book).  You can always Ask a Librarian at the Research Help Desk on the first floor. See example below.

  • Finding CDs.
  1. Search for your favorite music (I searched for the Korean pop group, Sistar).  Your search results may include articles and other non-CD items.  See example below
  2. You’ll need to limit your results by “content type” to specify audio items.  See example below.

Task #8: Write down the call number.  Notice that CDs are found at the Second Floor Service Desk.  Take a picture of yourself at the Second Floor Service Desk with your CD.

  • Interlibrary Loan.  What happens when the library does not have your book, article, or CD?  Use Interlibrary Loan (ILL).  We borrow your item from another library.  Most items are free.  Learn more about ILL http://www.oswego.edu/library/ill.html
  1. Set up your ILL account with your LakerNet ID https://illiad.oswego.edu/Illiad
