Welcome to the MSVU Library website
This tutorial will show you how to navigate the library homepage, where to get started when doing research, and where to find help with using library services.
Library Services
Learn more about what the library has to offer
Navigate this tutorial by using the arrows on the bottom of your screen. You can also click anywhere on the presentation to look more closely at that section.
You can use the library URL: http://www.msvu.ca/library
There is also a link to the library homepage on the main menu bar for the MSVU website
If you are using a mobile device, this may look different. Click the menu icon to open the list of links.
Information on all of the different services offered by the library is located in the menus at the bottom of the page.
If you are on a mobile device, you may have to scroll down to the very bottom to see these menus.
When you click on each menu, it will expand to show more options.
Both distance and on-campus students can find information about library log ins and getting a student ID at these links.
Information about faculty services, including help for distance faculty and Fair Dealing information is also available here.
Help links are located in a menu on the right side of the library homepage.
Live Help chat boxes are located throughout the library website.
Live Help is run by Novanet, and is staffed by people working at college and university libraries across the province. They will answer your questions and help with your research through a live chat.
The Library FAQ shows questions we are often asked. You can search through these questions, just browse the list, or submit your own question.
The library creates guides and videos about using different resources and tools, which can be found under the "Library Research Help" link.
You can view your book loans right from the home page.
You will be prompted to log in with your barcode and password. The barcode is found on your student ID card. By default, the password will be the last four digits of your phone number.
Perform a basic search by typing a few words or a phrase into the search bar. This will search all of the books at the MSVU library, as well as some of the journals.
You will be asked to log in with your MSVU username and password or continue as a guest. Logging in will show you more results.
Databases are one way to find subject specific resources or to do research. Click "Databases A-Z" to be brought to a list of the library's subscriptions.
Journals contain either peer-reviewed or professional articles that can be used for your assignments. This link will take you to a searchable list of all of the journals the MSVU library currently subscribes to.
Subject guides are curated lists of resources created by librarians for each specific subject.
Guidelines and tutorials for using library resources and getting started with research are contained under the "Research Guides" link.
Most guides suggest databases, journals, reference material, and citation information.
Course instructors will often place materials on reserve for their classes at the library. A guide to accessing these materials is found under the "Course Readings" link.
