Summer Classes: How the Library Can Help You Succeed

How We Can Help!

The Emory Libraries Can Help You with Your Online Summer Session Classes

Although the Woodruff Library (the main library) is currently closed, we still offer a lot of services to students!

  1. We're can help you find resources for your classes, or with your research. Use the Ask A Librarian page to get in touch with us via IM, email, or phone.
     
  2. Another option for help -- we have librarians who specialize in every subject -- these are the subject librarians for Summer Session 2. Or you can ask me, Erin Mooney, who has worked with a number of high schools in the Atlanta area. And if I don't know how to help, I can direct you to the person who is best suited to answer your questions.
     
  3. We have all sorts of resources that can be accessed no matter where you are -- online journal and newspaper articles, audio-visual materials, primary sources and eBooks. There's SO MUCH it can be confusing, so ask us for help.
     
  4. Access eBooks using the library catalog, discoverE. Access other materials -- articles, primary sources, audio-visual materials -- via the databases (select resources by subject or type). Here are some multi-subject databases to start with, but make sure to ask your subject librarian if you need something more specialized. 
     
  5. Yes, you really DO need to use library resources -- better sources make for better projects, better projects = better grades. Check the research guides for help with specific subjects and classes. 
     
  6. The library is YOUR (virtual) learning space. Tell us what you need.
