Library News

The Library's Web Services Department, with the help of Library faculty and staff, has revamped several of our "Just For You" pages.

These pages provide undergraduates, graduate students, faculty, distance learners, and users with disabilities with one-stop shopping for not only commonly-used resources like the Online Catalog, but also little-known workshops, tutorials, and other resources.

The Just For Undergraduates page has expanded to include links to the Library's Facebook, MySpace, YouTube, Flickr, and Google Video accounts, undergraduate and research opportunities, helpful websites, search tips, definitions of common Library terms, and a suggestion box.

Just For Graduate Students contains links divided into five themes: Library Services, Theses & Dissertations, Research, Other Campus Resources, and Information for Teaching Assistants.

Just For Faculty also uses categories to help busy faculty find what they need, let MSU faculty know what services we provide for them, help them contact their liaisons and suggest books for purchase, and enhance their classes using the Library's online resources.

The overhaul of Just For Distance Learners began as an initiative of the Library's Distance Learning Task Force. The goal of the page is to help distance learners feel included and to make sure they know that they have the same access to the Library's resources as do on-campus students.

The page includes links to Library resources, guides and tutorials, ways to "help yourself," other campus resources, and resources for faculty teaching distance learners.

The redesigned Just For Users with Disabilities page clarifies and categorizes the existing content while adding updated information about accessibility, Library services, and adaptive equipment.
