Updated Library Research Tutorials
We have updated five library tutorials that can offer your students excellent introductions to library research. Find tutorials about Library Orientation, Develop Your Research Strategy, Search for Resources, Evaluate Your Resources, and Cite Your Sources on the library website.
We are now loaning headsets with microphones for videoconferencing, and we’ve added a quick print computer to the Library’s second floor, near the printers. The third, fourth, and fifth flooors have new 3-prong and USB outlets along the windows, and we added a few height-adjustable tables to the fourth and fifth floors. We’ve also added a new practice presentation room. Read more technology updates.
If you have questions about these events or any other library resources or services, please Ask a Librarian. Have a great fall term!
