Welcome Back to School!

Dear friends,

As fall term begins, it is our pleasure to enthusiastically welcome everyone back to our campuses and the libraries. Payson Library was especially busy in recent days hosting new student orientation activities, including tours for parents, a Genesis Lab open house for students, and information sessions for transfer and international students.

For all first-year Seaver students, we offer a reminder that you are each assigned a personal librarian to help navigate our extensive digital and analog collections and to assist you with research. Contact Melinda Raine for more information. You can also visit our library directory and reach out to the subject liaison of your intended field of study.

The libraries will continue this year to offer core digital resources for students introduced when classes went online, including virtual research consultations, expanded online chat, and electronic course reserves. We have also added a considerable number of new volumes to our stacks, so we encourage students, faculty, and staff to stop by any of our locations to peruse the shelves, especially for newly published titles that may not be available digitally. Our fall hours are listed online.

We look forward to seeing you in the library!

With warm regards,

Mark S. Roosa, PhD
Dean of Libraries
