Understanding your Library: Getting Started

New to research? Haven't been in the classroom for a couple of years? This guide goes over all the Library basics.

Welcome to the Library

 Welcome to the Understanding your Library page!

 We have designed this page to help guide you through the resources available to you at the Masland Library, both in print and digitally.  The way people use and process information has changed dramatically in the last 20 years and these changes are reflected in the use and distribution of the resources available to you at the Library.
