Brenham Campus Library Tours - Spring 2013

Welcome to the Blinn College Library!

The Blinn College Library will be giving walking tours of our facilities this spring beginning on Wednesday, January 30th through Friday, February 1st. These orientation sessions will offer our students, in all disciplines of study, a basic introduction to library resources and services. After touring the facility, the library website, policies, and procedures for using our resources will be discussed in our instructional classroom. The goal of the walking tour, lasting about 20-30 minutes, will be to make our students feel comfortable in coming to the library and asking for help. Students do not need to make an appointment prior to a walking tour, but a blue ticket can be issued as proof of attendance, if required by an instructor.

In collaboration with faculty members, in-depth instructional classes are provided throughout the semester. Instruction may vary from finding resources through the Blinn College Library Online Catalog, locating scholarly journal articles in our periodical databases, or evaluating the relevance and authority of information in all its formats. All classes will be taught in our instructional classroom with hands on activities of skills acquired. The teaching librarian will be giving an assessment of skills taught at the end of each instructional session. Instruction request forms are available online through the library website.

Walking tours are scheduled at these times:

Wednesday, January 30 @ 3:00pm      
Thursday, January 31 @ 7:00pm      
Friday, February 1 @ 11:00am      

No reservations necessary! Just come to the "Circulation Desk" in the library at one of the times listed above.

Please contact a librarian if you would like a tour, but can't make it at any of the times scheduled.
