Transcript

  • 1. I wish that I had known about the library’s private study rooms. They have been very helpful when I have had group assignments. Sometimes, it is hard to find one place that is quiet enough for a whole group to get together, and these rooms were equipped with desks, chairs, and chalk boards. The library has a number of study rooms available for checkout. There are also study carrels and study tables on each floor of the building.

  • 2. I wish that I knew the library had research consultations. I have been in many classes where I needed to write paper that consists of multiple sources. If I had known about a research consultations sooner, I could have had help finding sources and using the online library databases rather than spending time figuring it all out myself. Research Consultations allows students to consult one-on-one with a librarian to get in-depth assistance in library research. This includes identifying and locating the most useful sources of information for your paper, project, or assignment; effective web search strategies; and evaluating information sources.

  • 3. There are many services that the library offers that I did not know existed. When I began UNA for my freshman year, I did not have to take the first English classes because of my AP exams (I went straight to taking the Lit classes my first semester). I feel like the students that take the composition English classes get a good overview about the library, but I missed out on that. For a LONG time, I did not know about the online research databases that our library offers; I was still using the Alabama Virtual Library! I feel like my first year at UNA, it was a bit overwhelming to go into the library. The library is extremely helpful and a vital source to students.

  • 4. I wish I had known to pay more attention to the orientation given in my freshman composition class and remembered more of the information. English 111 and 112 are not the only times you'll need to complete research for assignments. Remembering that information and not being afraid or too 'independent' to use the library's resources would have made researching so much easier. Library Faculty and Staff are here to help. You can contact the Help Desk at 256-765-4469.

  • 5. “I wish I would have known that the library had study rooms that are available to check out. I also wish that I would have know that the library stayed open till 1 during the week.” Brittany Jordan Graduate, Merchandising Lagrange Society Ambassador Freshman Forum Advisor UPC Delegate Collier Library is open until 1:00 AM Sunday through Thursday. To learn more visit the library’s homepage: www.una.edu/library
  • 6. I wish I knew how easy finding sources were through Collier Library’s online databases. Collier Library gives students access to research databases not only in the library, but also from home. And if you find the perfect article or book to use but you cannot access it, you can request the library to get it for you, and the library will contact you when it’s in. Research papers made easy! Hailey Boeck Junior, Marine Biology Honors Program LaGrange Society, Resident Assistant Collier Library subscribes to over 150 different databases with full-text access to peer-reviewed journal, magazine, and newspaper articles.

  • 7. Matthew Spencer Jones Senior, Marketing Lagrange Society SGA Senate Order of Omega "I wish I knew more about the Librarians my first semester. It took me being forced to go to a Librarian for help on my research paper my second semester to actually see how helpful they were. For example, a librarian helped find me 5 sources in a matter of 15 minutes which propelled me to make a 100 on my research paper that counted for 40% on my final grade. Definitely don't wait for someone to force you to go to the library, but embrace and welcome all the great resources that Collier Library offers." Collier Library professional librarians are available on-call at the library to help you find sources and use the library. You can reach a librarian in person, by phone, or online.

  • 8. When I first started at UNA, I didn't know how many resources the library offers; they provide access to books, ebooks, journal articles, audio visual resources, and news articles on any subject I've ever needed. Also, if the library doesn't have a resource a student needs, more than likely the library can borrow it from another library if the student submits an Interlibrary Loan Request--that's saved my projects a time or two!! My favorite thing above all, though, is the study space: group spaces downstairs and study rooms upstairs are great for group projects, and the individual cubicles on the 2nd and 3rd floors are the best places on campus to work. I've spent countless hours studying and working on projects in the library, but I didn't know I could do that until well into my sophomore year. Interlibrary Loan (ILL) is a service for obtaining materials that are not available in the University of North Alabama libraries. Materials needed for study and research, such as books, government publications, and journal articles may be borrowed from other libraries.

  • 9. "I wish I would have utilized all of the different resources that Collier Library has to offer sooner. The library offers many more resources to students than just books! Ask the workers and get comfortable with your surroundings! You'll spend lots of time here as your college career goes on!" The library provides access to over 150 subscription databases, thousands of eBooks, streaming media, and much, much more.

  • 10. “I wish I knew more about the variety of resources available at the library. I could have utilized more sources provided by the library for my research papers in my English classes and my article summaries in my Elementary Education classes. The internet should not be your only option for sources.” Paige Pack Senior, Elementary Education Honors Program Executive Editor, Diorama Vice President, Phi Kappa Phi The library has more than just books. Collier Library has a constantly growing film collection and electronic resources. There are over 150 subscription databases, thousands of eBooks, streaming media, and much, much more.

  • 11. " I wish I would have known about the STUDY ROOMS for my personal usage and Group Work as well. " The library has a number of study rooms available for checkout. There are also study carrels and study tables on each floor of the building.

  • 12. "I wish I would have used the research databases online more during my early years at UNA. Also, as a commuter student, I wish I had known about all the different areas in the library and the ability to get a study room. The library is a great place to study, but I did not fully utilize it my Freshman year. ” Brittany Vogel Senior, Accounting Phi Beta Lambda Spirit Chair, University Program Council Accounting Scholars Secretary, Phi Mu To learn more visit the library’s homepage: www.una.edu/library
  • 13. "As an underclassmen, I wish I had been better familiarized with the Research Consultation service offered by the Library. Research is one of the most difficult, tedious, and time-consuming tasks in academia. Hence, having a convenient resource that offers assistance and guidance through this process can make research projects considerably less stressful. I owe a lot of my success to the research librarians. They are definitely among the University's unsung heroes.” Michael Beaver Senior, Computer Science Consultant, Center for Writing Excellence CAARS Tutor Study Abroad Participant Research Consultations allows students to consult one-on- one with a librarian to get in-depth assistance in library research. This includes identifying and locating the most useful sources of information for your paper, project, or assignment; effective web search strategies; and evaluating information sources.
