First-Year Experience (FYE): START HERE

FYE and Library

This guide is designed to help you know where the library is located and who is available to assist you both in person and online.

After working through this guide, you should be able to identify the location of the library homepage and understand basic navigational features as well as be introduced to the physical space of the Katie Murrell Library.

Although you may not utilize library and other research tools immediately in your college career, they will be useful to know about in the future.
