Staying Connected with WU Libraries

A resource guide for parents and families

Dear WU Parents and Families,

Welcome to Staying Connected with WU Libraries.  Expect monthly updates featuring timely tips to share with your students.  Of course, students have access to this info, but a nudge from the family never hurts : )  

If you ever have questions about the Libraries and their sources and services, please contact our First-Year Experience Librarian, Kristine Helbling.  Feel free to connect with other Libraries staff too, particularly the Subject Librarians.

Best wishes to you and your students as 2018-19 begins!

September Tips

Below are some key links to get acclimated and maximize all the WU Libraries system has to offer.  To start with, encourage your students to get to know the geography of Olin Library by taking a tour on their mobile phone.  Olin Library's 24/7 access begins soon, so they can learn the layout anytime!

WU Libraries also has a slate of research and tech workshops on offer this fall.  Students can learn about data management, how to conduct a literature review, and how to use citation management tools effectively.
