Request Forms Expedite Your Research and Document Retrieval

For 24/7 service, OCLS maintains forms that prompt students and faculty for the information required for a timely response. The first item found on the "Key Links" menu is a "Submit Request form."

Fill out this form to request coaching in research strategies. OCLS librarians will provide a Personalized Search Plan (PSP). The PSP provides the steps and terms needed to conduct research on your topic.

The same form may be used to request help with APA writing style, paper editing or finding a required resource for class.

Jackson Library and OCLS Each Serve a Specific Clientele

Library service to students at Indiana Wesleyan is the responsiblity of two specialized teams:

  1. Jackson Library, which houses the print collection and primarily serves those who study on the campus in Marion; and,
  2. Off Campus Library Services (OCLS) which serves adult students who pursue their education from remote locations.

Most adult learners take their courses online or at education centers, and these students should contact OCLS when assistance is needed. The staff of Off Campus Library Services were involved with developing curriculum for remote courses, and these librarians know the typical assignments a student confronts. The OCLS staff have a "research guides" developed for a common course research topic. These guide the student in the appropriate research strategies in a timely basis. Because the OCLS team is trained and equipped to serve students in remote locations, those students should contact OCLS to request help with library research and APA.
