Welcome to the library course guide for Dr.Brekka's History of Visual Arts I and History of Visual Arts II classes. In this library instruction session we will be reviewing library resources pertinent to the research you will be doing for your class.

Basic Library Tutorials

The  RESEARCH 101 TUTORIALS will provide you with background information about how to use the library such as logging in to the library webpage from off campus, using Find It!, searching three basic databases, etc.  If you are new to using the library, need a refresher, or want to learn about a few important new resoources like Find It! in the library, it would be best to review these tutorials prior to coming to the library for your instruction session.
