For Immediate Release

STILLWATER -Library 101 is back in action to give students a quick lesson on how to make the most out of all of the services the OSU Library has to offer.

Library 101 is a 15-minute orientation to the OSU Library that familiarizes students with the layout of the building and the resources available to them, along with a 15-minute overview of the Library’s website and online resources.

Dan Chaney, OSU social sciences librarian, is in charge of the program.

“Often, knowing how to get help is the most important thing we try to share with students,” Chaney said. “All of our resources can be accessed remotely, but if they’re having problems finding information or resources we can help.”

Each tour begins at the general reference desk on the first floor. A librarian will guide the group through the building and discuss where research materials can be found and the locations of services, such as the self-checkout machines and study rooms. After the walking tour the group will be given a crash course in how to use the Library’s online resources.

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, and no reservation is required.

OSU faculty may arrange class tours by contacting their departmental subject-specialist librarian.
