How To Start the Semester Off Right

It’s a brand new semester so make sure to check out our list of useful tips from Brookens Library to help you start the semester off right!

  1. Get to know your librarians and the SPARK Team.
    Acquaint yourself with our online chat box (found on the library homepage) and know that our librarians are here to help with your library questions! You’ll also see a lot of the SPARK Team – our peer research student squad – with weekly How To Tuesday videos (see below), research tips and other fun stuff on Instagram, Twitter and Facebook.
  1. Bookmark our What to Expect at the Library Guide.
    Find up-to-date info about library services this semester – hours, research help, requesting materials for pick up, etc. You’ll want to check our guide frequently as our services and hours may change throughout the semester.
  1. Learn how to search our new library catalog.
    We launched a new library catalog this summer, so take some time to play around with finding a book or learning how to request an item from I-Share. Check our tutorials to learn more.
  1. Explore new places on campus.
    While the library building is currently closed at the moment, check out our interactive Google Map of outside study spaces (with photos!) on campus.
  1. Relax and have fun with an eBook or eAudiobook.
    Download the free cloudLibrary app to your mobile device and browse through our collection of popular and fun reads with cloudLibrary!
