Welcome [Back]!

Hello all! Just wanted to say welcome back to returning students, and also welcome to Stevens to all the new students. Please feel free to stop by the library if you have any questions about library services and resources, or just to say hi!

The library is located across from the Howe Center, right next to the gym (we're the brick building behind the statue of the horse and rider in the middle of the quad).

This semester we will be debuting our new IM reference service (we'll let you know all the details in an upcoming post). Also, feel free to look up your Information Services Librarians, Linda Scanlon Beninghove and Valerie Forrestal, on Facebook and Myspace. You can send them your questions or concerns there too!

The Information Services Librarians are located across the great hall from the circulation desk. Stop by the reference desk all this month for a free SC Williams Library mechanical pencil!

Most of all, good luck in all your studies, and have a great year!
