It’s Veterans Appreciation Week and we’re doing our part to honor and support our student veterans. This afternoon we’re hosting an informal meet & greet in the Veterans Resource Center. No databases or citation talk. This is just a time to relax and get to know each other.
When you are ready to explore what the library has to offer, see below for recommended starting places. We even have a resource guide created especially for our student veterans.
Library Resources for Student Veterans
The library at Clayton State University has many resources that can be useful for student veterans. Beyond books, we have librarians to help with research, spaces for you to study in peace and quiet, and even laptops you can check out and computers you can use on-site.
Our librarians keep up-to-date LibGuides on a wide range of subjects. If you’re wondering where to start, here are a few specific guides you may find useful.
Student Veteran Resources: This is a LibGuide specifically tailored to the needs of student veterans. It has resources for standardized test preparation, links to books on college study skills, and resources on reintegration into civilian life and military-to-civilian employment.
Circulation Desk Services: This LibGuide offers a detailed overview of what the circulation desk, located on the lower level of the library, has to offer. It covers everything from GIL Express and ILL (services that allows students to request books from other libraries) to course reserves (textbooks kept in the library that can be checked out for two hours at a time).
Library Research: This LibGuide is a good place to go if you’re wondering where to start with a research project. It offers insight on such things as finding a topic, keyword searching, and evaluating information.
In addition to the librarians’ LibGuides, the librarians themselves are an excellent resource. They’ll be happy to help you with research, and are available via phone, library chat, or by appointment. Below is a list of our research librarians and which departments they represent.
