Brown Library

New Semester Orientation

Brown Library provides orientation each semester for distance learning students, for students taking classes on campus and at off-site locations, and for anyone who is interested in learning more about the library's services and resources.

Orientation sessions are held in the library's classroom and typically last thirty minutes. Seating is limited to 25 people, so please register in advance by contacting Lynn Hurt at 857-6445 or

Library orientations for the spring semester, 2010, will be held at the following times:

  • 1/27 - 6:00 p.m.
  • 1/29 - 2:30 p.m.
  • 1/30 - 10:30 a.m.

Also, you may request from Ms. Hurt a copy of the Library Handbook. This manual is a guide to library resources and services. It gives general information about the library, explains how to use our most popular databases, and shows how to cite sources.

Library Orientation at Off-Campus Sites

At the invitation of your instructor, Ms. Hurt will go to your off-campus class to demonstrate the online databases and provide an overview of library services.
