    I Love Libraries!

    "If you give a man a fish you feed him for a day. If you teach a man to fish you feed him for a lifetime."

    Lao Tzu

    Working one on one at the reference desk, or with a group in a classroom I try to show students how to “fish” what they need out of an ocean of information.


      Course Description

      Course Description:

      Students learn to use research tools found in most libraries to gather, organize, and evaluate information from various sources, including library databases, catalogs, and the Internet.
