Responding to COVID-19: Due to COVID-19, all University Libraries locations are closed. You can chat and email with us Monday through Thursday 7am-7pm, Friday 7am-6pm, Saturday 11am-6pm, and Sunday 1pm-6pm. We are not currently accepting any new hold/pickup or scanning requests for physical items. See details on library changes and support.
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.
