Do you want the students in your classes to view specific library resources (online or in print)?

Consider arranging for a CourseLib page for your class.

CourseLib is a database for librarians, in consultation with faculty, to create custom-made pages for specific courses. A CourseLib page will list current links to online library resources, links to specific MNCAT records for books, and can include instructions and links for library-related assignments.

Contact Susan Gangl, Librarian for Kinesiology and Sport Studies.

Information Commons open in Wilson

The Information Commons opened on the first floor of Wilson Library on November 11, and we're seeing regular and heavy use already!

For example, students compiling photos of figures in sports history can scan images and design Web pages at the Information Commons. They can write their papers using Word, compose a Power Point demo for class, research journal indexes, and read their e-mail.

After students have drafted a paper, they can consult with the Student Writing Center consultant, during the hours that service is available within the Commons. Read about The Student Writing Center Help Desk in the Wilson Information Commons.
