Hello, and welcome to the 2016 Fall semester at UIS! I am Pattie Piotrowski and as new University Librarian and Dean of Library Instructional Services I want to warmly welcome students, staff and faculty to visit Brookens Library. Brookens Library has something for everyone, from research tools and materials to collections of popular DVDs and ebooks (we even have Kindle Fires you can borrow as well!) In addition to our own collections, we provide interlibrary loan services, so we can get you what you need. Beyond collections and tools, we have a great staff of librarians who can meet with you and make sure you’re on the right research track, or even help you with that final piece of the research puzzle. Schedule a consultation for you or your study group and let us help you reach academic success.
You’ll also want to keep an eye on the events and activities we hold, including what has come to be a campus tradition – the Haunted Library – held this year on October 21. Brookens Library will be at the Campus Involvement Fair on August 24th from 4:00-6:00 pm. Stop by our table and ask us anything, absolutely anything, you want to know about Brookens and start down the path to being an academic star with Brookens Library.
All the best to new and returning students and remember: it’s not good luck that gets you good grades, it’s good library assistance! If you see me on campus, let me know how Brookens Library can best help you.
