Question: I'm doing a report on the history of basketball. I'm clueless on where to start and when I find a book, how do I locate it in the library??
Let's start by searching our databases to see what articles and books can be found about basketball. We will use the keywords "history" and "basketball" to start off. Once we see the initial results, we can filter the results down to something workable by limiting the date range, scholarly articles, and in the United States only. Once you find a book, using the call number on the spine, I will gladly show you how to locate this item in the library.
A typical question asked of a Reference Librarian in a law school: Where or how can I find this case or statute??
In Oklahoma, we have a very comprehensive legal website run by the Supreme Court called OSCN. On that website, you can locate Oklahoma Statutes, court opinions, district court docket information, state Attorney General opinions, and much more. Let me show you how to use OSCN.
Communication is key when dealing with employees. What are some of the best practices to use to make sure your employees have comprehended what you've said to them??
A manager must be able to communicate using several different methods. First, you need to use verbal communication and ask the employee did they understand the information. After you ask that question, actively listen to the answer. Make sure you are paying attention and re-state some of the concerns that the employee mentioned or ask follow up questions. Next, communicate in writing, via email or bulletin post. Require employees to sign the written communication and to direct all questions to you. Let them know you will be following up with everyone to ensure that there are no miscommunications.
