ARC Library Resources for Natomas Center Faculty: Library Orientations


Library orientations introduce students to the library's online catalog and research databases, present effective internet search strategies, and explain how to evaluate information.  Librarians can provide orientations tailored to your research assignments.  Library instruction helps students to be more successful, relieves library anxiety, and improves the quality of papers.
