Weekly Library Zoom Sessions

Some weeks we will be hosting library Zoom sessions.  Some of the sessions will be overviews of searching the library resources and some will be more specific - such as citing in APA style or using particular databases.  We will post the information for the Zoom session here.  Everyone is welcome to attend.

Heather Gray is inviting you to a scheduled Zoom meeting on Thursday, July 9th at noon.  This session will introduce you to the resources available through Rickman Library and how to access them as SWU Online students.
