Meet YOUR Library

Click on the image here to begin a tutorial called Meet Your Library. It is in 5 short segments. One of these is a walking tour of the building itself. The others can be done anywhere and introduce you to various electronic resources and tools to help you do research for your classes. There are a few questions embedded within the tutorial. If you actually DO the tutorial, the questions will be very easy. You really should not get any wrong!
