Now that you’ve attended the Aims of Education address, it is time to put those goals into practice. The Library is offering several orientation programs to help you get started using our collections and services for your classes and assignments.
Get in shape for College research by attending the Library Boot Camp on the A-Level of Regenstein Library on Wednesday and Thursday (September 24 and 25) at 11:00 a.m., 1:00 p.m. and 2:30 p.m. Library Boot Camp will provide you with a fast-paced overview of key library services and research tools essential to success in your first quarter of classes. Along with toning your Library skills, you’ll get a Library mug at the end—perfect for visiting the Ex Libris Café when classes start.
Don’t get lost in the bookstacks! Tour Regenstein Library From Top to Bottom on Friday and prepare to navigate the largest library on campus. The tour will cover all the key points of interest.
