Students: Start the New Semester with Atkins

Start off 2014 and the new semester right! Students who are on campus the two days before classes begin (Jan. 6 & 7) are invited to come to the library and enjoy pizza with their subject librarian, attend a library workshop, and take a tour of Atkins. Find out how your library can help you succeed!

Schedule for each day:
Atkins Library Introduction Workshop – 9 & 11am, 2pm
Learn to navigate Atkins Library’s collections, services, and spaces to prepare for success in the new semester. We will show you how to use our general search as well as searches for other useful and unique resources available to you through the library. You will also learn how to reserve study space in the library, how to get help with research, and how to best use the library to support your academic success at UNC Charlotte.
Meet your librarian 3:30-4:30
Did you know that there’s a subject librarian assigned to every department, major, or class you can take at UNC Charlotte? Join us at 3:30 in room 124 to introduce yourself to your own subject librarian and have a slice of pizza.
We study how you study (Atrium, all day)
Ever wonder how the library designs its quiet and collaborative spaces? Stop by the Atrium and see examples of ethnographic research done by our own Library Anthropologist. If you’re interested, she is always looking for more students to participate in focus groups and research studies on how students do their work—whether you are in our space or not.
Library tours 10:30am, 1 & 3pm
Get up close and personal with the most popular place on campus. Meet our Library Anthropologist at the First Floor Information Desk and see why Atkins Library is the best place on campus to study, meet classmates (or even nap).
Self-guided tours
Can’t make it to a scheduled tour? Stop by the Information Desk to pick up a copy of our new self-guided tour. Atkins Library is the most popular place to study on campus—the tour will show you all the most popular spots to work with groups or for quiet study, plus some of our newest technology for collaborative work.
