Welcome to the First Year Experience guide! Since you are in your first semester, I want to welcome you to SSU and the library in particular. The library's resources -- including the library staff -- are here to help YOU as you take courses at SSU.
You will see tabs down the left of this page. Click on each for helpful information. The first two relate to the library -- explore these to find out everything the library offers. You may be surprised! Most of the other tabs direct you toward sources of help -- academic and personal.
I am one of the librarians and one of my specific responsibilities is to help FYE students adjust to life as a college student. If you begin to have questions or concerns with academic work -- especially researching for class assignments -- please contact me using the information in the "Meet Your Librarian" box on the left side of this page. Helping students is a major part of my job and I love doing it. So please don't hesitate to meet with me!
As you become more familiar with these research guides, you'll find "Meet Your Librarian" boxes on each page. These are here to give you ways to contact the librarian assigned to that department. All librarians are happy to help you as you complete research for your classes....just ask!
I want to welcome you, again, to campus and to the library. I think you'll find SSU a great place to complete your studies!
