Library Speaker Series — Instruction Librarians Discuss Reliable Information vs. Alternative Facts

What is Fake News? In this age of fake news and alternative facts, students are in greater need than ever for help in determining how and where to find the most reliable information.

Librarians have been providing just such guidance for years. In this session, we will discuss strategies to help you determine if a source is legitimate.

Please mark your calendar and plan to join us on  April 20th, 2:00 PM in the Wachterhauser Seminar Room, Post Learning Commons 2nd Floor.

This event is open to SJU faculty, staff and students. Light refreshments will be served.

Two-sided printing

We’ve had a lot of students inquire over the past several years about printing on both sides of a page.  Well, we’re happy to report that the library now offers double-sided printing!  When you go to print, select ‘Properties,’ and ‘Flip on Long Edge’ if the pages of your document should be viewed with a vertical long edge, ‘Flip on Short Edge’ if it should be viewed with a horizontal long edge.  Hopefully, in the end, we’ll save more than a few trees!
