Orientation Events at the University Library

Library orientation events can be integrated into university courses or scheduled by individual users. The University Library provides support with getting to know the library, showing you how to find and borrow library materials, and how to use electronic resources. Groups can register for a library tour in which participants can familiarize themselves with the arrangement of the stacks and the opportunities for studying and working in the library.
