The Library has a growing collection of e-books in nearly all subjects by many different publishers. These can be reference works for quick verification, such as encyclopedias; research books written for an academic audience; or textbooks used by professors in classroom teaching.
The various e-book databases provide such features as: searching the full content of one or multiple books simultaneously; highlighting text; adding personal notes and creating one’s own bookshelf; downloading content; linking out to cited content; and exporting references to RefWorks
For more information about searching for and accessing ebooks, have a look at the new guide for electronic resources.
The University of Ottawa's Library Online Search+ Catalog is used to find articles as well as books available at the Faculty of Education Resource Centre (FERC) as well as other libraries on the campus:
You may also want to use the classic catalogue if you are looking for books, in particular.
The collections of the Faculty of Education Resource Centre (FERC) are organized according to the Dewey Decimal Classsification (DDC) to reflect the environment of a majority of school and public libraries. You may want to share the link on How to find documents in the library with your students. Or look at Resources for teachers and students of the DDC .
These 10 classes are divided into 100 subdivisions and numerous subsections to create a descriptive call number to retrieve the book from the shelves. For example, the book "How do we know the nature of the ocean?" (Dewey call number: 551.46.G65 2005) by Natalie Goldstein is divided in the 7 subsections as shown below:
When you find a document located at the Annex or at Roger Guindon Hall, these documents are located away from the main campus. In both cases, as an Education student, you can have them delivered to the location of your choice, you don't have to go to that location. For all other libraries, you are expected to go and get the document since the other libraries are at a walking distance.
For documents located at the Annex, you can request them electronically using the interface of the library catalogue:
When you click on them, you will be prompted to fill out a form asking your name, your library card barcode and your date of birth.
You are now ready to request it and have it delivered at the Morisset library or the FERC.
For documents you need located at the Roger Guindon Hall, you can ask them at the Centre's circulation desk or the Morisset Circulation desk depending on where you prefer to pick them up. Your request will be processed.
