CCH Database Access: Tips

Posted by isulib on November 28, 2016

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:

  1. Go to the library homepage at http://library.indstate.edu
  2. At the top of the window, click Find > Electronic Resources (Articles)
  3. Scroll to the top of the window. Under “Browse databases by subject”, click Business & Economics.
  4. The Business & Economics databases are displayed. Scroll down and click CCH Internet Tax Research Network
    1. If you are off campus, you may be asked to login to MyISU.
  5. The CCH Intelliconnect login appears. Click Create User ID.
  6. Follow instructions and create an account using your ISU e-mail.
  7. Go back to the CCH Intelliconnect login. Login with your new CCH username and password.
  8. You are in the database. Help is available from within the database by clicking the “Help” button at the top of the webpage.

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.

Project Success Students in the Library

Posted by isulib on August 18, 2016

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):

  • Library (in Library Events),
  • Center for Student Success (in 028) and
  • the Math & Writing Center (in the Center).

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.

PS-1

Always start with a word cloud!

PS-2

                                First year students need to know how many different components                                          make up a university library

PS-3

                                                 First year students may use the building more than the                                                                actual resources during their first semester.

PS-4

It’s hard to spot the books when you first enter the library, but they are there!

PS-5

We have many ways for students to seek out help. If in the building, first stop is here.

PS-6

We get a wide variety of questions thru chat. Linked from Blackboard sites too!

PS-7

The newer way to contact librarians when a consulting appointment is needed.

PS-8

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:

  • Sally Neal, Instruction & User Services Associate Dean, Butler Universitty
