LibGuides —What are they & how can I use them?
LibGuides can be found on the Library homepage under GUIDES link. They have been created by Librarians and library staff to provide online help.

1 Cover all subject areas

Librarians have created subject guides to help students doing research in all different majors and disciplines, from Art to Women’s Studies.

2 Suggest resources LibGuides recommend the best resources, like databases and
websites, for doing research in a specific subject. They also explain “how to” use and locate these resources.

3 “How-to” guides There are also many “how-to” guides available on topics such as how to
cite using APA and MLA, Safety and Security, Reference Tools, and EndNote.

4 Course guides Course guides are also available for many courses like ENG 1020, to help
students find the specific resources they need for course assignments.

5 Contact a librarian Guides also contain contact information for the liaison librarian and
many librarians can be emailed directly from the guide page. Developed by Anne Hudson & Judith Arnold Fall 2010 Public Services Information Fair

Undergraduate Library One Stop Service Desk
1. One Stop Shop: No more multiple lines!

No more standing in line at one desk just to be told that you need to stand in a line at another desk.
2. One desk=multiple services

A single service point where you can have all your questions answered- be it reserves, reference, etc. –as well as basic check in/checkout services.
3. Direct Services

The library will increase the number of computers that patrons can use to quickly search the catalog for media, circulating, or reserve materials.
4. Personal Service:

With having a single combined desk this will allow Librarians to offer more personalized service- such going to the stacks to help search for a book or going to a patrons computer station- without leaving the desk empty for another patron to wait.

5. The Future! The library will look at self-checkout systems that could reduce the wait to checkout material and offer greater personal service for those who need, or wish, to speak directly to a library person.
