Library Tours On Demand

Hello Your Librarian is Jane Doe

You stream videos on demand – why not tour the library when you need it most? 

Monday, October 15th through Friday, October 19th library staff will be launching Library Tours On-Demand, a 15 minute tour of library resources when you need it most! Library staff will be seated at the entrance of O’Shaughnessy-Frey Library between 11:00 am and 4:00 pm introducing students to this new service and giving tours. 

What is included in the tour?  
It’s not your average architectural and stained glass window tour; in 15 minutes you will know how to discover and locate books, articles, journals, online resources, and microfilm. Don’t know what microfilm is? You’ll find out!

Why should I spend 15 minutes on a library tour? 
When it’s down to the wire and you have 9 hours and 33 minutes to pump out an eight page paper on DNA fingerprinting who are you going to turn to? Your research librarian, whose contact information you will now have.

Nathan is so helpful!

I would like it to go on record that Nathan is  – not only – knowledgeable regarding  the policies and procedures of the Circulation and Reserves Departments, but he continuously shares his expertise and does it in a highly professional manner.   He is always helpful and ready to give good advice and I appreciate his work ethic!!

Lovely talk on Gardens and Health

Fabulous help in the stacks

Yesterday around noon a Circ student worker gave a patron great service. He was shelving or retrieving books in the stacks and encountered a student looking for the New England Journal of Medicine. When they didn’t find the journal there, he found his way to my office to help her out. I pointed out that the year needed was available only on microfiche and he and the patron headed off to the micro room. He came back to follow up on her behalf regarding the equipment and I went to help her further. In any case, I wanted to say he did a great job.


Kudos to Jan O.

…for figuring out how to get our personal folders back in Outlook, and communicating this!
