When you see the green circle at the top left corner of the chat box, a library staff member is live on the service, available to help you!
Use the little curved arrow to "pop" the whole chat box out to a separate window that you can make larger.
Use the little envelope to email yourself the entire chat history for later use.
The UASC Librarian, whose office is located in the Special Collections reading area, may also be available to assist you (appointment recommended -- 566-0536 Simon Lloyd email@example.com). Appointments with UASC staff for visits outside of scheduled hours and for in-depth reference consultations may be arranged.
If you would like to contribute to the development of the Robertson Library's digital collections (which are freely available to all) please visit our Gift page or contact Donald Moses (firstname.lastname@example.org, 902-566-0460).
These collections have been digitized by UPEI Robertson Library staff. For commercially published digital collections (e.g. ebooks), see Find Books and More.
The most current research on any academic topic is usually found in journal articles.
Use databases to find articles on a particular topic.
Robertson Library licenses databases for the campus community and they can be accessed directly thorugh the campus network or if you are off campus you will be prompted for your UPEI credentials. Print indexes can be found in the Reference area on the Main Level, shelved alphabetically by title [note: some indexes are also shelved in compact storage].
Databases and print indexes relevant to Family Sciences include:
Locate specific articles.
If you have a citation you can use the search box above to determine if the Library has the journal containing the article.
Alternately you can browse the Journal Titles List for titles to which the Library has print or fulltext electronic access.
If the Library does not have the journal containing the article, the article can be ordered through Interlibrary Loan.
Print journals are shelved alphabetically by title on the Upper Level. Those in microfilm or microfiche format are located in Special Collections on the Main Level.
Please contact the Library's Information Desk, 566-0696, for assistance.
