Three Steps to Get the Most from Your Library this Semester

Want to be more productive, research more effectively, and be more innovative in your teaching?  Your Libraries can help with that!  Add these three steps to your to-do list, and let us help you and your students on the path to success.

  1. Put your subject librarian on speed dial.  Did you know you have a dedicated consultant to help you with your research and teaching?  Subject librarians and specialists teach students and faculty about research resources, help you find information, answer your teaching and research questions, and select books and journals purchased by the MU Libraries. They are also available for personal appointments to discuss research projects or problems. Find your subject specialist.
  2. Register for a workshop. Our Fridays @ The Library workshop series covers resources and tools that can make your academic life easier.  It works on your schedule, too. You can sign up for face-to-face sessions in the library, or participate online from anywhere via Blackboard Collaborate. Browse workshops.
  3. Schedule a library instruction session. Librarians can help you teach students the skills to find, evaluate, and use quality resources for your research assignments. You can bring your class to the library for a customized instruction session or have us visit your class, in person or online. More information about instruction services.
