Still time to get your comments and questions to the library survey till Feb. 28!
Answers to some of your comments and concerns from the survey!
“What's a Bizhub?”
Bizhubs are centralized locations in the University Library to do printing, copying, scanning, and faxing. You can scan and email your documents at no cost from any of the copiers. It is an environmentally friendly alternative to copying with the emphasis on saving toner, paper, and money. For additional specifics see: http://web.library.emory.edu/services/computing/print-copy-scan-fax#copyscan
“the library could host info sessions on how to use resources or things on how to write papers, do research, use research materials in work, etc.”
Every semester the University library offers drop-in workshops on a variety of topics, such as understanding GIS (Geographic Information Systems), Google Scholar, and the bibliographic management tools Endnote and Zotero (so you can save references and create bibliographies). See the list at: http://guides.main.library.emory.edu/workshops
Professors can also request a library session for their classes that librarians can target to the assignment. Students get information on the best resources for that assignment as well as hands-on practice. See Instructional Services for Faculty for more information (http://web.library.emory.edu/services/instruction/services-faculty ).
