Earth Day Roundup 2015



Every year Kirkwood Library Services put up a display in honor of Earth Day (April 22nd). We also do a post about new Earth Day related books the library has added over the previous year. These titles are available at the Cedar Rapids branch of Kirkwood Library Services, but you can request them to be sent to any other center. We hope to strive to make every day Earth Day and it’s always a good time to learn more. Check out the round up of books on ecology topics from this year and previous years below.

New Books: A Very Short Introduction Series



Here at Kirkwood Library Services we like to post from time to time a collection of books recently added to our collection on a particular topic. Sometimes we also like to point people’s attention to particular series that have good basic information on a particular sort of topic. This time we’re pointing out the A Very Short Introduction series from Oxford Press. They cross a broad gamut of topics, but all are short, concise, and give the most important things you need to know on that topic. These are just a scattering of what we’ve gotten lately. Look for one the next time you have a new topic to explore.

Do you know about Interlibrary Loan?


, , , , ,

If Kirkwood Community College Library Services doesn’t own a book or journal article you want, we have a service where we can borrow them from another library and lend it to you. This service is called InterLibrary Loan.

ILL Shelf

ILL Shelf

The easiest way to request this service is to find the article or book you want in our WorldCat Catalog system or directly in one of our databases, like EBSCOhost. (In EBSCOhost uncheck the Full Text box to the left of the results list to find articles we don’t own.) Open the record for the item you want to request. Look for a button or a hyperlink that says “Request InterLibrary Loan.”

Clicking on the button or hyperlink will bring up a request for you to log in with your K number and password. The first time it will ask you to answer a couple of questions. After you answer them this first time you may have to return to the item you want to request and click on the request link again.  Every time after that, logging in will always bring up a prefilled form for the item that you clicked on. Be sure to click the submit button. At that point we send the request on to other libraries to let us borrow it so we can lend it to you.

You can log in to the ILL program later and check the progress of your request. We will also contact you directly when it comes in. The process normally takes around a week, but can be faster or slower depending on the time of year, how busy the lending institution is, etc.

Learn more and log into your account.

EVENT – Exam Cram: Session on Research and Citation Workshop

Feedback on Survey Spring 2015 Part 1


, , , , ,

Today’s post is directed specifically at Kirkwood faculty and staff.

The Library Services faculty and staff would truly like to thank everyone who took the time to respond to our survey. We were pleased to have 84 responses and plan on sending out another survey during fall semester. We encourage you to fill out our next survey as well.

Unfortunately the survey results did not clearly show whether the feedback was from Cedar Rapids or Iowa City. If there is something you specifically wanted in the Iowa City library from the lists below, please contact Kate Hess.

People who included their e-mail address in their response will be contacted directly about questions and requests, but we wanted to give everyone a chance to find out what we’ve done in response to the survey. In Part 1 we are responding to individual title requests and other things that could be quickly answered. There will be a Part 2 to follow up on the requests and concerns that take a little longer, but we wanted to report what we were able to do right away.

Individual title requests

Go Set a Watchman by Harper Lee, author of To Kill a Mockingbird, hasn’t yet been published but will be purchased as soon as it is out. In the meantime, let us suggest Mockingbird: A Portrait of Harper Lee and I am Scout: A Biography of Harper Lee both by Charles J Shields. Call Numbers: 813.54 L478sh and 813.54 L478s respectively.

A More Beautiful Question: The Power of Inquiry to Spark Breakthrough Ideas by Warren Berger- Ordered and received. Call Number 658.4 B496m

Waiting for Superman DVD – Ordered and now available in our Faculty Collection. It is also available on Kirkwood’s Video on Demand system.

Specific Serial Requests

Communication Teacher – ordered as an online publication, we’ll report when it’s available

FBI Law Enforcement Bulletin – currently available in the EBSCOhost database, full text 1993-07-01~present

Harvard Business Review Case Studies – We did investigate, but would really need some further information from the person who requested them: topics, specific titles, etc. Please contact us.

Interview magazine – currently available in the EBSCOhost database, full text 2002-11-01~present

New England Journal of Medicine – currently carried in paper at our Cedar Rapids location (current year only)

Wall Street Journal – currently available through the ProQuest database AND in paper at our Cedar Rapids location

We are still working on checking prices for some titles.

More General Category Suggestions

A Very Short Introduction Series from Oxford Press Roughly two years ago we became aware of an assignment which began to really increase the circulation of this series. Since then we have been steadily adding to the collection titles in our holdings. We currently have more than 250 titles from the series, paper books and e-books combined.

We had a lot of requests for more documentaries, but without titles or subjects. If you are interested in us adding more documentaries, please e-mail us with specifics of what you are interested in.

Textbooks on Reserve

There were also some requests to put all textbooks on reserve. The library policy is to NOT purchase textbooks. This is because given the wide range of titles used by different instructors even within a single class, the cost would be prohibitive to provide them all. If the instructor or the department wants to loan us a copy, we will be glad to put it on reserve.

The circulation department of both branches of the Kirkwood libraries has material that has been placed on reserve by instructors for their students.  The instructor may bring the material to the library and fill out a reserve form or print the form online and send it to the library with the book, article, etc. (Please refer to Course Reserve Policy to determine type of material that is allowed).

The majority of the materials are placed on closed reserve meaning they are for use only in the library. Students may make copies or scans of the required pages.

To find more information and the reserve form directly on the Library Services homepage:

     Click on:  Explore our Help Guide

     Type:  “Faculty” in Lib Guides Search Box

     Click on:  Faculty Services

     Scroll down to:  “Placing Item on Course Reserve” in the box in the lower left hand corner of the page. See Links for Course Reserve Policy and Library Reserve Form.

Longer Term Projects

We also got requests for adding some journal database subscriptions and topic based requests. Also some suggestions about how we do things in the library. Some of these may take longer to process and answer. We’ll do a second part reporting on some of the longer term projects later in the semester.

In the meantime, remember that if there is something we can do or add to our collection to help your students or you, please ask. We can’t promise to fulfill every request, but we will do our best.

Make sure you check back, things change in the library and collections are always growing and changing.

Again, thank you for responding to our survey, look for a second response post later on.
