Ease your research anxiety

In Oz it may be Lions, and tigers, and bears. Oh my! But in the library we hear  databases, articles, and MLA. Oh my! The library can help relieve your research anxiety.

The library is more than just a place to take a break between classes. Through our Learn@ the Library programs we offer you the opportunity to improve your research skills, find better articles faster, and easily create a works cited page.

All Learn@the Library sessions meet in the Research Center on the first floor of the library. Stop by —  reservations not needed.
