Faculty Guide to Library Services

Introductions to the Library

New students can benefit from an introduction to our library's spaces and services.

We welcome faculty teaching classes such as CAS 101, UNV 101, or other introductory courses.  Sessions cover topics such as who to ask for assistance, reserving a study room, printing, and using the Library's Discovery System, Primo. 

Contact Kari Mofford or your liaison librarian to schedule a library introduction for your class.

For ENL101, A librarian may be added in your myCourses site to provide supplementary content and offer support.  For ENL102, in addition to the above, we offer multiple information literacy visits tailored to the class theme.
