An introduction to some of the library services of most interest to undergraduate students.
For Your Classes
LibGuides are online research guides created by librarians for specific courses and subjects. Course-specific guides often help you complete specific research assignments. Subject guides showcase resources for research in specific disciplines.
More Services for Students
University Libraries recognizes that members of BGSU may choose to use a name other than their legal name. Reasons to use a different name can include using your middle name, shortening your name (ex. Jim instead of James), using an anglicized name, or choosing a name that better fits your gender identity. To share this choice, students, faculty, staff, and card-holding guests can contact the Director of Access Services, Andrea Boehme (firstname.lastname@example.org) to indicate their preferred name and/or pronouns.
Your preferred name and/or pronouns will be added to your library account so that circulation employees know to use it when communicating with you. Automatic notifications will still reflect the legal name on record with the University. Library employees who do not have access to your library account will not be able to see your preferred name.
The Collab Lab offers peer-to-peer instruction on a variety of software applications and has 3D printing, a green screen, and more cool tech to take your class projects to the next level. Assistance is available by appointment, through drop-in visits, one-on-one, in small groups or through class visits.
Look up the contact information for the librarian in your area to make an individual appointment with a subject specialist.
The troubleshooting guide can help you if you are having trouble accessing resources or logging in from off campus.
