Business students often need to access our Commerce Clearinghouse [CCH] Internet Tax Research Database.
Students get confused when they are asked to login twice (first, login to the ISU proxy and, second, login to the CCH database). Also, the Internet connection seems to be poor. They often get an error message. If they just refresh the webpage, the error often resolves itself.
Here are the steps to successful access:
About the database: The CCH Internet Tax Research Network provides tax news as well as federal and state tax information. Included are tax codes, regulations, court cases, rulings, legislative documents, treaties, IRS publications, as well as CCH explanation and analysis. Federal Tax Archives are available for all years since 1978; State Tax Archives are available for all years since 1994.

The library provides many ways to get research help and reference questions asked, as well as questions about checked out items, overdue bills, printing, and just helping people find library materials.

On Wednesday August 17, Reference/Instruction Librarians Marsha Miller and Karen Evans provided the library component of Project Success. Reference/Instruction has been involved in this special early fall semester week-long initiative since its beginnings in 2009.
This year, between 2:00 and 3:15 the student cohorts (50 students total, cohorts A Different World and First Sycamores) rotated between 3 Academic Resources presentations (Your Academic Life):
Coordinated by Stephanie Pearcy, Director of First Year Student Outreach and Success in the University College, students attend a section of Univ 101 and meet with various campus entities, culminating in a closing banquet on Thursday August 18. This year’s goals were more familiarity with campus people rather than lots of subject matter. Other presentations that week are under these themes: Advising/Social Justice; Student Life; Looking at Your Future; Helping Hand. Project Success students will also help with the regular student move-in on Saturday and Sunday.
Karen and Marsha presented 20-25 minute lively snippets about the library. Some of the information shared is shown below.

Wednesday, July 20: Academic Libraries of Indiana’s INFORMATION LITERACY UNCONFERENCE
Sally Neal, Associate Dean for Instruction & User Services at Butler University Libraries is Chair of ALI’s Information Literacy Committee informs us that, as of this posting, registration is still open for this FREE conference (includes breakfast, hot lunch, snacks).
Time: 8:45am – 3:30pm (Opening Session begins at 9:30)
from the Conference website:
How does your institution partner with other campus departments, units, and disciplines in teaching information literacy? In addition to the traditional partnering we do with faculty and discipline departments and programs, we want to know how you are partnering with writing centers, learning resource centers, career services, student affairs, greek life, health & wellness, programs, diversity programs & services, campus publishing initiatives (undergraduate journals and manuscript publications), and teaching and learning centers. Partnering with curricular development committees and administrative units can also be discussed concerning developing programmatic information literacy. The goal is to highlight how “two or three can be better than one” when it comes to teaching the concepts of information literacy.
Via the unconference model, attendees will identify the topics to be discussed through the day and work together to share examples and discuss options.
UnConference Planning Commitee members are:

Students are invited to drop-in anytime during this new 4-hour event. The goal: provide students with advice on how to finally get started, or continue, with that troublesome assignment or paper they’ve been putting off.
With the expert assistance provided by librarians, and math and writing coaches, they can get help they need, all in one place, and all in one night whether it’s tips on successfully taking exams, writing an A paper, getting started on research projects, or learning new study skills.
It’s also an opportunity for students to get relief from the stress that can keep them from concentrating on their course work. The event will feature snacks, games, and coloring books. Stress reduction tips and counseling will be available from Student Health Promotions staff. The event will provide students with numerous opportunities to take advantage of expert assistance that will help them succeed academically, mentally and physically as the semester winds to an end.
