If you’re planning on taking summer classes at UIS, then you definitely need to check out some of the amazing resources offered by Brookens Library. By utilizing the library to its full potential, you’ll be as successful as possible in your classes and have a great summer semester.
Librarians can help you find books, of course, but they are also great at doing research. Whether you need help deciding which databases to use or you need to identify specific search terms, the librarians at Brookens can assist you. To book an appointment with a librarian, head to the library’s website and click Research Guides. From there, you can select your subject, learn who that subject’s librarian is, and book an appointment with them.
If you just have a quick question, you can also use the Chat with a Librarian service, which is constantly monitored during the week from 10am-6pm Monday through Thursday and 10am-4pm on Friday. The chat service can be accessed from many pages on the library’ website, including the homepage.
If you’re on campus, the library is open from 10am-4pm Mondays through Fridays and 10am-6pm on Wednesdays. The library is the perfect place to study on a hot day while you’re working on your summer courses, so make sure you take advantage of it. If you’re just looking to check out some books, the library’s Grab-and-Go service operates during study hours as well. If you’re planning on coming to the library during the summer semester and you want to double check the hours, you can see them here.
The library has everything you need to be successful this summer! Check out all of these awesome resources and reach out if you have any questions.
