Welcome to the start of the Fall semester. This Fall, Brookens Library has some awesome events planned, including One Book, One UIS activities, library tours and orientations, and a myriad of instructional sessions. Talk to your librarian liaison to schedule library instruction for your classes (we do face-to-face and online instruction). We can also provide one-on-one research consultations to you and your students.
Drop-in library tours are offered each semester and we’ve scheduled both on-campus Tours and online Virtual Tours for Fall. The Tours cover where to find books and articles, how to access resources from off-campus, where to get research help, and more! See the Brookens Library calendar for dates and times.
If you would like a tour or other library instruction during class time, contact your library liaison to schedule.
Remember that we can also order materials for the library collection; however, due to the lack of a budget for FY2015/16 the library is not currently ordering materials unless an item is urgently needed. If you need to request such an item, please contact your liaison.
We are eagerly looking forward to the One Book, One UIS events this year. MARCH, a graphic memoir about the life of civil rights icon John Lewis, has been chosen as the campus community read for the 2015/2016 academic year. Congressman Lewis, co-author Andrew Aydin and Illustrator Nate Powell have agreed to speak at the University of Illinois Springfield in conjunction with the program. Their presentation will be on Monday, October 19 at 7:00 in Sangamon Auditorium. Check the UIS calendar for other events related to One Book, One UIS.
Brookens Library and the Library Instructional Services Program look forward to working with you and your students this semester. See you in the library!
