Personal Librarians

Personal Libarians

As part of the First Year Experience Program all freshman are given a Personal Librarian. What can a Personal Librarian (PL) do for you? He or she is here to be your point person for all things library related. Do you have a research paper or project coming up? Your PL can help you find the sources you need to successfully complete that assignment. Do you need help with writing citations? Your PL can help you with that too. Contact your PL with any questions and they will do their best to help you!

Information Literacy

Additionally, we are here to teach you about Information Literacy. Information Literacy is the ability to understand when information is needed, find that information, critically evaluate the information, and use the information effectively and ethically. In the FYE we will begin to teach you these skills through video tutorials, quizzes, and in-class lectures. 

Tutorials

You will be required to complete a series of tutorials in order to satisfy the requirements of the information literacy component of the First Year Experience Program. Please contact your Personal Librarian if you have any questions or problems.

You will be able to access the tutorials through eClass.
