A few items to consider as you return:

Virtual Library Resources for Summer 2021
Many, if not all, of the resources students enrolled in FYS courses will need are online and accessible from Wesleyan’s campus library website.
Wes’s library has a couple of resources it recommends to summer FYS students to help them learn the lay of the land.
Research Essentials is the best starting point, as it explains what the library’s resources are and gives a tour of the library’s website.
The library also has video guides available to help students who want to familiarize themselves with the library’s collections.
And of course, assistance is always available to students in the form of librarians who live to help. Don’t hesitate to reach out if they need anything!
