For Immediate Release
STILLWATER - Library 101 is back this semester to give students the opportunity to learn about the OSU Library and the helpful services it provides.
Library 101 is a guided tour that packs the Library’s highlights into a 15-minute learning experience. Each tour familiarizes students with the layout of the building and the most popular resources found inside. Tours are followed by an optional 15-minute introduction to the Library’s website.
The man in charge of Library 101 is social sciences librarian Dan Chaney. Chaney knows the Library can be overwhelming for new students and said Library 101 tours are given to help with that feeling.
“The Library can be an intimidating place,” Chaney said. “Simply walking around the building with a librarian for a tour can help break down the barriers to access that students may feel exist.”
Each tour starts at the reference desk on the first floor. A librarian will meet groups and guide them throughout the building to discuss the locations of research materials and services, such as the self-checkout machines and study rooms.
Library 101 takes place once a week on alternating days throughout the semester at both 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. Tours are free and open to the public, with no reservation required.
OSU faculty may arrange tours for specific classes by contacting their departmental, subject-specialist librarian.
