Question:

On a library website, what benefit is there to using LibGuides?

Brittany M.
Answer:

LibGuides are webpages that are easily manipulated to create content in a user-friendly, but sophisticated way. LibGuides do not require the developer to know a lot of HTML code, and their customer support are helpful with customization for your library.

Question:

Why do academic libraries use the Library of Congress classification system instead of Dewey Decimal?

Brittany M.
Answer:

The Dewey Decimal system only has 10 classification categories whereas Library of Congress has 21 classification categories. More categories makes it easier to support larger collections like you would find at a university.

Subject: Databases

TutorMe
Question:

What is the difference between searching in a database and searching using a discovery system?

Brittany M.
Answer:

A discovery system often searches multiple databases at the same time. Searching within a database, especially a subject-specific database, can generate more targeted results without having to filter out a lot of irrelevant sources.
