For Immediate Release

STILLWATER - This fall, all students, from the overwhelmed freshmen to the studious graduate students, should take advantage of  Library 101, a general introduction to the library facilities and services.

“Not all students are aware of the vast amount of tools the Library offers," OSU Librarian Dan Chaney said. “Library 101 is a valuable orientation every student should utilize and can help with succeeding in school."

Library 101 is a one-hour, free to the public, orientation to the OSU Libraries. It includes a 30-minute walking tour of the Edmon Low Library, which starts at the Information desk on the first floor. Librarians walk the tour group through the building while pointing out a variety of services and providing basic information about research materials in the Library.

Each tour is followed by a 30-minute introduction to the OSU Library website and catalog. The hands-on training sessions are conducted in Room 206, the Library's computer training lab.

During the first two weeks of school, Library 101 is offered Monday-Friday at 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. and then once a week throughout the semester.
