Join your fellow graduate students in order to gain a better sense of the information landscape on the Bloomington campus.  Hear about the ins and outs of our online catalog (IUCAT), services such as request delivery, an explanation of our renowned Shared Print Repository (ALF), and an overview of key databases such as the IEEEXplore site, the ACM Digital Library, MathSciNet, Books 24X7, WorldCat, and others.

I'll have office hours this fall on Wednesdays and Fridays, 12:00 - 2:00, in Swain East 205.  Please feel free to drop by with questions, if you're having difficulty accessing e-books and online journals, or if you have more in-depth refererence questions throughout the semester. I can also be found in the Chemistry Library or on the Reference Desk in the Wells Library.
