Orientation to Library Services & Research Tools


Welcome to the library! This webpage is called a subject research guide, AKA LibGuide. Librarians create different guides to organize information resources by topic, subject, of course. Using a guide improves your efficiency because it identifies pertinent databases, websites, and other information sources, so you don't waste time. 

The theme of this LibGuide is to orient you to library & writing lab services
