If you ask a JHU student why they are in the library, they might tell you that they are there to study, to do homework, work on a group project, or use a computer. Taking a look around M level, that seems to be what most students are doing right now. But the library isn’t just a place where you can work – any other study space on campus can offer something similar. So what makes the library so special? Well, here, you can discover new things! You are completely surrounded by a wealth of information that you can’t find anywhere else. But the trouble with with all this cool information right here just waiting for you? You can’t always find it.
We’ve tried to make that easier for you with a brand new guide to help you find the information you need. Books? You know we have those, but even just figuring out what floor to start on can be tricky! Articles? Tons are online, but are sometimes more trouble to get to than you thought. Media and images? We have that too! Keep hitting a roadblock when you need something we don’t have? This guide walks you through the process.
You probably don’t use the library resources all day every day like us librarians do, so we don’t expect you to figure it out on your own. Check out the new guide to Find Books, Articles, and More, to give yourself an idea of how to start navigating the big wide world of information. But if you get stuck, don’t forget, we’re here to help you too.
