If you need more comprehensive information than the Library/LRC can offer, our reference librarian can direct you to the appropriate library.
Formal library orientation classes are taught by librarians on a first-come, first-served reservation basis. Instructors interested in having a presentation done for their class should schedule it at least one week in advance. Contact the Instruction Librarian to make arrangements.
