Indiana University Libraries is inviting incoming students -- whether freshman or first-time on campus -- to learn more about their digital offerings.
Librarians are welcoming new students to learn more about the IU Libraries in exchange for the best cookies on campus, found at the legendary Sugar & Spice bakery inside the Indiana Memorial Union.
Through a short online tutorial, students get an overview of IU Libraries and its services. Encouraging students to not be shy about getting personal help, the online orientation gives instructions to schedule a virtual consultation with a Learning Commons librarian or assistant. The Learning Commons, which is designed with undergraduates in mind, provides help with class research, questions, or support in general. Smart Cookies also introduces students to IUCAT, the online card catalog, and e-resources such as databases and e-books. The online orientation provides links to videos and tutorials as well. Set up a personal consultation or ask us at any time for help.
The Smart Cookie program runs through September 6, at which point all participants will receive an email with pick up instructions for their cookie.
Housed at the IMU, for over 50 years Sugar & Spice has been the go-to bakery on campus. Though our librarians often prefer the big chocolate chip cookies, the famous Gingerbread people are fairly popular as well.
