Welcome Back!

As this week ends, the Fall Semester really begins! We know you’ve been using the library — our website usage is up 830% from last week!

We’ve been working all summer long on some new services. Here’s a highlight of what we’ve been working on.

What’s New?


Did you know that both APA and MLA have changed the rules a little bit this year? Luckily, we’ll be offering several workshops throughout the semester, among them Research the Smart Way and How To Cite MLA and APA. Sign up for a FREE workshop to brush up on your research skills.


The library has several course and subject guides in a new format called LibGuides. We hope that you will find the information there useful!
