Web-Based Manuals and Tutorials
The library has several web-based manuals and tutorials available to aid in understanding library policies, operations, resources, and services. Please check out Luther Rice library’s YouTube channel. Please see the Manuals and Tutorials page on the library website for a list of tutorials available.
LibGuides are library guides created by LR librarians and staff to assist students in locating relevant materials and learning more about specific library databases, features, functions, etc. Check the list of guides for specific courses, the Bible Commentaries Guide to help you find commentaries on certain books of the Bible, and the Turabian Formatting Guide to help with writing papers in the proper format.
Many questions asked by students can be found on the FAQ page of the Library website. There, students will find answers to questions such as, “How do I get Log-on assistance?”, “How do I get research help?”, “How do I find articles on a topic?”, “How do I cite articles?” etc.
The librarian provides online video tutorials and live in-person and virtual library orientation sessions for students to become proficient in their use of the library, its resources and for information literacy development. Topics addressed in these sessions reflect expectations for Luther Rice students as set forth in the Association of College and Research Library’s Framework for Information Literacy for Higher Education and the Information Literacy Plan developed by Luther Rice.
