To get your money's worth from library services, ask questions of the Librarians. Answering questions is the function of the professional librarian, however any staff member will be happy to help with research if asked.
All freshmen, transfer students and new faculty are involved in a library orientation process at the beginning of the academic school year. Faculty members are encouraged to bring their entire class to the library for orientation if they feel there is a need. A library orientation video is available for students upon request. Individuals or groups of students may also request private sessions of library orientations.
