6. Using the Library: A Key to Success

My encouragement to you is to go tomorrow to the library.

-Maya Angelou

Many students are intimidated by the library at their university. They are accustomed to smaller public and school libraries, and many have never visited a large research library. However, your librarians want to help you, you just need to stop by and ask! Most libraries will give you a brief tour, helping you to understand where things are located and highlighting the resources available to you. Many university libraries offer more than just access to research, many offer movies and games, fun social events, and classes on how to use the equipment in their makerspace.

As the name suggests, a makerspace is a place where you make things. They often feature 3D printers, sewing machines, vinyl cutters, and other useful tools.


Be sure to explore all the fun things your library has to offer, but also don’t forget to use your library for your research projects!
