Welcome and welcome back! The Fall semester is underway–classes, tests, papers, research. Tired just thinking about it? Let the library help! We have study guides and books to help you with every class: Math, English, Science, Nursing…the list goes on and on. Don’t let yourself get behind. Let the library get you started on the right foot!
The library subscribes to a database called Opposing Viewpoints that is really helpful for finding information on controversial issues.Â However, sometimes it can be hard to think of a topic or lay out your argument for a persuasive paper.Â Procon.org can help you.Â You can either select a topic from the homepage or type in a subject to search.Â From there you can choose to look at the top ten arguments for the topic or delve deeper into the issue.Â It even has a page that shows you how to cite your work.
All students and faculty are invited to attend…
Late Night at Todd Library on Thursday, November 12th, from 9 PM to Midnight!
– free snacks and drinks
– prizes every hour
– help with research and using library resources
– Wii (mid-semester stress buster!)
Enjoy the evening with faculty and fellow students!
This site helps to “provide accurate and unbiased information about topics in genetics, bioscience and health.”Â Topics include stem cells, addiction, DNA, and more.Â This site also contains interactive tools and tutorials.Â My favorite is called “Cell Size and Scale” which visually compares objects to show how tiny cells really are.
