LITEBite #7: Dude, Where's My Book?
Dude, Where's My Book?! Using the Online Catalog (2:30minutes)
Get some good-looking help finding College Library books.

LITE (Library Instruction To Everyone) Bites are short videos created by Diane Mizrachi, reference/instruction librarian in the UCLA College Library. These videos were designed by Jeff Warden and his student production team with the help of Stephen Sherwin of College Library. The videos are for UCLA undergraduate students, and were created under the generous auspices of the UCLA Office of Residential Life (ORL). Each short video tells the tale of various UCLA Library services with a humorous, fun theme.

JESSE: Woah!
[they approach a young female librarian sitting at the front desk, who flips her hair back as Jesse looks at her over his sunglasses]
JESSE: Hello, bodacious library babe! Can you tell us how to find our book?
[cut to a slow-motion shot of the librarian flipping her hair, as Prokofiev's love theme plays]
LIBRARIAN: Well, the catalog is the best place to find books, as well as journals, movies, and online resources.
JESSE: Awesome! Can you show us how to use it?
[cut to the same slow-motion shot of the librarian flipping her hair]
[she hands them a piece of paper]
LIBRARIAN: First, let me give you this. And if you have any questions, just ride on the road to research.
