Responding to COVID-19: Chat and email with us daily! Mon-Thu 7am-9pm, Fri 7am-7pm, Sat 11am-6pm, and Sun 11am-9pm. We’re resuming limited services in the Main Library lobby, and the Health Sciences library is open to Health Sciences affiliates. Learn more about access during COVID-19..
Due to library renovation, we will be replacing this activity with another option that adapts to the continual building changes we will have this semester; updates coming soon.
Your first activity will be to complete a library orientation game to get familiar with the Main Library and the services that are available to you as students. Get in groups of 2-3 and either use a group member's tablet, smartphone, or laptop, or check one out from the library at the first floor help desk. Come into the Main Library anytime it is open to complete the activity. Results will be shared with your instructors.
Along with following a format for this course, you should understand that there are different citation styles to follow in different disciplines. You will need to learn a style and use it in your projects as you progress through your education. Keep these ideas in mind when using citations:
Think about how citations allow you to make bigger connections between what you have learned through research and your own ideas as you write.
Staff at the library reference desks have worked through the exercises for English 101 and are ready to help answer your questions. You can go in person, call them at (520) 621-6442, or connect with them via chat or email.
