On the homepage of the Library homepage students will find a search box along the top of the screen. They should select the "Search everything" option and type in their question into the search box.
Search everything searches Quick Answers, Thoreau, and the Library’s website (e.g. help and guides). When the students click the magnifying glass to submit their query, they will see Quick Answers results in the middle of the next page.
Students can then select the Quick Answer that most resembles their question.
Quick Answers frequently include links to related guides and videos to offer students additional information if needed.
Our library guides teach students the skills they need to become information literate. Guides include brief videos and screen shots to illustrate the skills being taught.
