Welcome back!

In case you want to start the semester off with a fresh attitude towards library research, you might want to check out the general orientation tours and open workshop schedule.

General orientation tours are open to anyone who wants to know more about the library. The times will be posted and all you do is show up at the reference desk on the second floor. If you have a specific interest you can relate that to the librarian scheduled. Generally, the general tours are offered the first 2 full weeks of the new semester. The schedule should be ready soon.

Open workshops are offered throughout the semester and the topics vary from general database searching to using the MRI marketing database. Some workshops are offered more than one time a semester and are open to anyone. The workshops take place in room 101 downstairs and around the corner from the student lounge.

You can also learn more about Refworks by attending one of the Refworks sessions offered.

If you like to find information and use it on your own check out the IL wiki and library research guides for help with specific subjects. Also, we have created a few tutorials and uploaded them to YouTube. (eventually this intervening page will go away and everything will be on our youtube page.)

Have a great semester and remember if you need help or have a question about anything... Ask a Librarian!!
