Welcome back! It’s time to start another semester. Classes are in full swing, and as the homework and research paper assignments start piling up, it’s important to remember that the library has everything (or almost everything) you need to make this year an academic success. And what it doesn’t have can usually be ordered.
When it’s time to write those papers, check out the wealth of electronic databases we have to find credible sources. You can also check out our bound and current periodicals, and our stacks full of books if you want to use hard copy sources. If we don’t have what you’re looking for, you can order it. A librarian at the Research Help Desk or one of the interlibrary loan staff can help you with that.
Education majors, don’t forget to check out the Curriculum Materials Center for all of your teaching needs, from teacher’s edition texts to lesson plans to curriculum kits. There’s something for every subject, including foreign languages and health and physical education.
Education majors (including the library science majors) also have access to a wide variety of children’s literature (easy reading, adolescent fiction, non-fiction and biographies) to prepare them for heading their own K-12 or library or to help with lesson plans and curriculum integration.
In addition to these resources, you can find PCs, MACs and scanners in library.
You can also follow everything that’s going on at Rohrbach this semester. Check the blog for interesting information about Rohrbach happenings, libraries, or current events. You can also join us on Facebook. And if you want to keep up with library events and improve your vocabulary, follow us on Twitter to get the latest news and the word of the day. Check the library web site (www.kutztown.edu/library) for links.
So stop on by to work on your research and homework, to peruse the stacks, or just to hang out with friends and enjoy a cup of coffee at the coffee shop on the first floor. We hope to see you some time during the following hours:
Sunday: 2:00 p.m.-midnight
Monday-Thursday: 7:45 a.m.-midnight
Friday: 7:45 a.m.-5:00 p.m.
Saturday 9:00 a.m-5:00 p.m.
Good luck with your classes, and have a great semester!
