National Library Week

National Library Week

First sponsored in 1958, National Library Week is a national observance sponsored by the American Library Association (ALA) and libraries across the country each April. It is a time to celebrate the contributions of our nation's libraries and librarians and to promote library use and support. All types of libraries - school, public, academic and special - participate.


Here is what we have planned for 2018:

Monday, April 9 - Walk-in Research Clinic

2:00 - 4:00 p.m. Perdue Study Area

Need help with your current research project? Or assistance locating the appropriate resources for an assignment?  Need to improve your research skills or learn about the Library’s resources? Drop in at the Walk-in Research Clinic and get the help you need.

Librarians will be available to help:

  • Locate high-quality sources using the library databases
  • Incorporate research/sources into papers and projects
