Welcome to all our new and returning students from the faculty and staff of Brookens Library! The start of a new semester is exciting, but it can also be overwhelming. There are so many details to keep track of, and so much to learn. Even returning students can find that many things have changed, from class schedules to roommates.
The UIS Welcome Week theme this year is “You Belong @ UIS.” As you get used to your new classes and begin to discover what groups you enjoy, and where you fit in on campus, we hope you will realize that “You Belong @ the UIS Library”, too.
There is a place for you here: from Mary Jane’s Cafe on the lower level, providing your coffee and snack needs, to the staff of the Reference and Information Desk on level 2, catering to your research needs. From magazine, newspaper, and book Browsing Areas to comfortable study lounges with access to CD’s and Audiobooks, the library has what you need. We even have free Wi-Fi. Check us out online at http://library.uis.edu, or better yet, visit us in person. We’re looking forward to meeting you!
