Librarians Need Your Help!

Sara here, the library instruction coordinator for COR 101.

According to a research study in 2013, on average, freshman arrive to campus with these top five myths about the library: librarians help only students who have gotten stuck on their research; books on library shelves are outdated; college is about being independent-most students don’t need to ask for help; everything is online; scholarly databases recommended by a librarian are the only sources worth checking.*

FACT: For every major, there is a librarian subject specialist that can assist students with whatever kind of help then need.

FACT: Our collections and databases are constantly updated.

HELP US DISPEL THESE MYTHS NOW BY INTRODUCING YOUR STUDENTS TO THEIR PERSONAL LIBRARIAN! HAVE A LIBRARIAN SHOW YOUR STUDENTS THE ROPES!
