Library Orientation Classes

Library Tours and Orientations
Sessions are held each month to provide an orientation to the library and its services for new employees and students. No registration is necessary for these sessions which offer a tour of the facility, a brief overview of databases available, and an introduction to library services. Tours will begin at the Service Desk, 1st floor

Library Survival Skills
How can I research a topic and read full-text journal articles without leaving my desk? This class is designed to both introduce you to Library resources and services and access the Library's electronic resources from the Library's Web site. In this one hour class we cover searching the Library Catalog, finding full-text resources using current awareness tools and accessing resources from home. This is a monthly brown bag (lunchtime) hour class designed for HU and HUH staff to show you how to quickly locate articles and other materials available from the LSHSL. No registration is necessary. Meet at the service Desk, 1st floor, Louis Stokes Health Sciences Library, 501 W Street NW
