Get to Know Your Library

The Library – Need to Know and Fun to Know
Still settling into classes? Not sure how to find an article for class? Need a reason to get out of bed on Thursdays? The library has it covered.
Need to Know: Chat with a librarian for help
The library chat is a great way to get help quickly and easily. Check out the library website (library.loras.edu) to start a library chat. Or use the chat boxes embedded in most library web pages. Loras librarians are available to chat 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. They reply to requests in about a minute (often within 30 seconds). The library chat is a great resource to help you start your research process, find books or articles, get assistance with interlibrary loan, double check citations or just see if there are still treats left over from Thursdays@the Library.
Fun to Know: Thursdays@the Library
Thursdays can be tough, with work to do and the weekend just a little too far away. Luckily the library has free snacks every Thursday, starting at 9 a.m. The goodies usually include cookies, pastries and fresh fruit, with coffee, tea and hot chocolate to drink. Everyone from the Loras community is welcome to join us.
