EIGHT-THIRTY-GRAPHIC2

Here’s your daily dose of  library-oriented speed-reads to start your day!
 

WELCOME

Welcome to Spring Semester 2015! Best of luck with your new classes, and please remember to come to the Library when you need help! Here’s some first week survival tips!


THIS IS NEW!
And, welcome to The 8:30 – a daily blog post that will provide you with a quick rundown of all that day’s events in the Library and other interesting news and links to check out before you start your busy schedule. We’re here, as well, to make the thought of an ‘8:30’ something to look forward to in the morning! Anyone who’s ever had an 8:30 class will probably know what we’re talking about! 😉
