Instruction for INQ Students

We are extremely excited about working with first year students! If you are an INQ 101 instructor, we strongly encourage you to bring in your class for an introduction to the library. We can provide a general overview of the library and work with you to provide an instruction session and assignment that are tailored to the class's research.

What Should FYE Students Know?

This is a list of things that we think every first year student should know about the library:

1) where the library is

2) the difference between the Reference Desk, the Circulation Desk, and the IT Help Desk

3) how to log in for off campus access/course reserves/requests

4) the difference between the open internet and the library’s scholarly online article databases

5) that there is a subject librarian for every major, and how to contact those librarians

6) how to use SouthernSearch to find a variety of library resources and start to differentiate between them

7) how to cite the resources they find
