This guide is designed specifically for Mining 371. It has a variety of resources that you can use for your research paper. Please contact us if you need assistance finding additional information.
One of the first things you need to do is make sure your Wildcat ID card has been scanned into the UK Library system. If you have checked out a book, you are ready to go. If you haven't done so, please go to any UK library main desk and ask them to scan your card. This allows you off-campus access to our electronic resources like article databases, eJournals, and eBooks. It will take 24 hours to activate so don't do this on Friday and expect access on Saturday.
Sometimes we don't own journals or books you may need for your research. In that case we will try to borrow or purchase articles from outside libraries. This will require a separate Illiad account. Setting this up now will make the process go more smoothly.
Here is a list of scheduled consults. Please call the library at 257-4364 and let them know if you can't keep your appointment, or email Sue and Kathryne - Contact info in boxes on the left). We are located on the 3rd floor of Anderson Tower.
