How can you get library help? Lots of ways! Sunday 9/27 availability of health sciences librarian

Reminder to UNCG health science students who have wondered "How can I get library help?"

Lots of ways!

The "Chat with a librarian" or "AskUs" service provides help in person at the Reference/AskUs Desk, by phone and chat during weekdays, evenings and weekends:

This is a great service!

Very handy, because your health sciences librarian can not be available all of the time!  If you would like to speak directly with me, an appointment is a good idea.  Please contact me:

I am typically available weekdays, but I sometimes have evening and weekend shifts.  During the fall 2015 semester, I am working at the Reference/Ask Us Desk many Tuesday evenings from 5-7 pm.  And I am scheduled to work at the Reference/Ask Us Desk this weekend, Sunday 9/27 from 2-6 pm.

FREE fitness and relaxation sessions for employees

Guess what I found at the printer this morning?

The Active U/Mindful U schedule for this semester.  This is not library related, except that exercise breaks = happy librarian. So I'm spreading the word.  With thanks to the anonymous librarian who left this sheet sitting out for me to find!
