Welcome Back, Returning Students!

Welcome back, students! We know you're relaxed from your sumer and working hard to get ready for the fall semester. Below are several services the library can offer to you and your students.

Research Consultations
Librarians are available to meet with you individually for one-on-one research consultation appointments. If you want help broadening or narrowing a topic, finding appropriate sources, or citing sources correctly, please set up an appointment with a librarian. This service has been heavily used by your fellow students in upper level courses in previous semesters.

Course Reserves
Your professor(s) may make supplemental reading materials available to you through the course reserves system, Ares. If you have questions about library reserves, or have issues with Ares, use the Ask Us Anything service to get research help.

We hope you have a great semester, and we look forward to working with you!

We highlighted several other services in our welcome note to new students, if we missed one fo your faves, please tweet us @shiplibrary or tweet it yourself and tag #shiplibrary so we can connect!

Welcome Back, Ship Faculty!

Welcome back, faculty members! We know you're working hard to get ready for the fall semester. Below are several services the library can offer to you and your students.


Instruction
If you'll be assigning a research project to your students, consider scheduling an instruction session with a librarian. Librarians can meet with your classes to discuss the research process, explain how to effectively use library databases and resources, review how to properly cite sources, and more. Ashley Esposito and Kirk Moll will be coordinating the scheduling of library instruction sessions for the 2016-2017 academic year. To set up a library instruction session, contact Ashley (anesposito@ship.edu / x3312) or Kirk (kamoll@ship.edu / x1473). Or click here to find the library liaison to your department, and reach out to her/him directly.

Research Consultations
Librarians are available to meet with your students individually for one-on-one research consultation appointments. If students need help broadening or narrowing a topic, finding appropriate sources, or citing sources correctly, you may encourage them to set up an appointment with a librarian. This service has been heavily used by students in upper level courses in previous semesters.

Course Reserves
You may want to make reading materials available to your students through our course reserves system, Ares. Click here to learn more about Ares. If you have questions about reserves, or experience issues with Ares, the Circulation staff will be able to assist you (libcirc@ship.edu / 717-477-1461).

Book Orders
To request materials for the library collection, use GOBI. The GOBI ordering process is outlined in the GOBI quick start guide. If you have a question regarding GOBI orders, contact Nicole Zinn (ndzinn@ship.edu) in Collection Management.

We hope you have a great semester, and we look forward to working with you!
