Instructional Activity & Reference Questions Stats (July – October 2016)

Posted by isulib on November 1, 2016

The Reference/Instruction librarians are busy year-round providing instruction sessions to undergrads, grads, and faculty, as well as high school groups. Online work includes building online research guides (libguides.indstate.edu) or working in course Blackboard sites.

The library provides many ways to get research help and reference questions asked, as well as questions about checked out items, overdue bills, printing, and just helping people find library materials.
