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 elect to use a name other than their legal name. Students, faculty, staff, and card-holding guests can contact the Director of Access Services, Andrea Boehme (firstname.lastname@example.org) to indicate their chosen name and/or pronouns. The following choices are permissible: using your middle name, shortening your name (ex. Jim instead of James), using an anglicized name, or using a name that better fits your gender identity.
Your chosen 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 chosen name. The Director of Access Services has the right to not accept or remove a chosen name if it is not permissible.
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.
