We miss you!
Library staff are used to seeing and talking with hundreds of students every day. Whether you’re checking out a book from Lina, getting help using the printer from Cecilia, having your citations checked by Shanna, looking for books on the shelf with Joe, or sitting down to discuss your research process with Susan, Haidee, or Hannah, our library staff are always happy to help you. We wish we could be at the college with you right now, explaining how to use a database.
We want your distance learning experience to be just as great as your in-person education is! So as we head into our first full semester of distance learning, the Library is ramping up online services. Some of our added programs include being available on the Ask A Librarian chat for more hours every week, adding more Help Guides for different classes and topics, and buying more ebooks to assist with your research projects. And we are happy to set up a Zoom meeting with you to show you how to do research: just email [email protected]
Virtual Library FAQs
We are also making video instructions on how to use all these services. Our first few video FAQs are already up and ready to use. We’re answering questions like:
- How can I get research support?
- Why use the library website for research? Why not just use Google?
- How can I tell if an article is academic?
- How do I watch a movie from Criterion?
What do you want to know?
Now we need to hear from you!
What other topics should we add to these video FAQs? What have you always wanted to know about using the library website or finding information for your research? Let us know on Instagram or Facebook.
