The following are commonly asked questions or tasks patrons want help with. Please feel free to ask for help at the reference and circulation desks.
How can I renew my books is a question we get asked many times and is surprisingly easy to manage if you have a 14 digit barcode. If you are new to Bank Street (September 2018) all you need is your Bank Street email address and the generic password changeme.
The Library subscribes to EBSCO Discovery Service. You can access this service from the Library’s homepage search box. Make sure you select “Search Everything.” EBSCO Discovery Service searches:
- The Library catalog (e.g., books, CDs, and eBooks)
- EBSCOhost databases we subscribe to (e.g., Academic Search Premier, ERIC, and Education Source)
- Directory of Open Access Journals (DOAJ)
This very useful database is comparatively small at Bank Street but compliments our EBSCO databases. It should be part of your research plan to search for articles in ProQuest. EBSCO identifies ProQuest as Education database in Find Journals.
You can make this popular search engine much more useful by including Library Links (Fulltext @ Bank Street & ProQuest Fulltext) as part of your Google Scholar settings. If you are at home, visit our Google Scholar blog post to get started.
