  • Innovative and comprehensive information literacy instruction sessions that we conduct in all academic programs

What is the most popular spot in the library for users?

  • Any seat by a window!Group study rooms
  • Overdue Brew (a coffee lounge area on the first floor)
  • Anywhere students can find computers and electrical outlets - especially the first floor by the friendly reference desk!

Which VIVA resource or service do we value the most, and why?

  • We especially value the resources acquired through VIVA Pooled Funds that include the EBSCO package (Academic Search Complete). Also, our ProQuest databases like Medline, which totaled over 300,000 DB1 searches last year)! We also use APA PsycTests, and the Ovid and Wiley packages heavily.
