We offer two different sessions, A and B. You can take one or both, in any order you like.

Workshop A

  • overview of library services
  • use the library website to locate books, ebooks, reserve textbooks, and other materials
  • learn how to request items from other libraries

Workshop B

  • locate scholarly journal articles, along with newspaper and magazine articles, using the library’s research databases
  • understand the basics of research database purpose and functionality
  • understand the process for off-campus, online access to library materials

Getting Credit

Some instructors offer extra credit for attending one or both of the sessions. Here is how you get proof of attendance:

  1. At the end of the session, you will be given a worksheet.
  2. You will complete the worksheet. You can do this immediately after the session or you can do it later; you will need to be online to do the worksheet, but you do not have to do it inside the library.
  3. When you are done, bring the worksheet to the Research Help desk on the 2nd floor of the LRC.
  4. A librarian will check your work. If you complete the worksheet satisfactorily, you will receive a paper proof of completion that you can give to your instructor.

We recommend that you keep a copy of this paper slip, in case a second professor also requires proof of completion. The Library does not retain records of attendance at these sessions.
