Fall Orientation

This week is new student Orientation for the Fall semester.  You may have attended a session on Blackboard with our Library Lab Technicians, Bev and Carole, who spoke about the ins and outs of Blackboard, equipment for check out, printing, saving, and other tips to making your experience here great!

Below, you will find the handouts that were given out during the Library’s Orientation sessions.  Have a great semester!


Find E-books at Ebrary!


Need to find an e-book with authoritative information, but don’t know where to look?  One great resource to use is Ebrary!  It contains over 70,000 e-books on various academic subjects.

You found an e-book…now what?  To download chapters, page ranges, and entire e-books from the Ebrary collection, follow the detailed instructions on the downloading tab of our e-book guide.

There is some initial setup involved in downloading entire books.  Plus, if you want to use your mobile device, you need to make sure that it can show PDF files (for chapters or page ranges) or is compatible with Adobe Digital Editions (for entire chapters).  A list of supported devices is available here.

Pet Selfies & Donations to the Humane Society

The Humane Society needs donations.  Let’s show the animals some love . . .

Drop off any of the items below in the Library and send us a selfie of you and your pet.  We will showcase the selfies in the hallway and on our Facebook page!
