Blackwell librarians are committed to creating and offering self-help tools for all Salisbury University students.  To this end, we offer the following tutorials, guides and handouts:

General Library Tutorial

the basic services and resources available in the library, how they work, where to find them and what you can expect from the library staff.  You should complete this tutorial if you want a broader, more in-depth explanation of what Blackwell Library offers.

English 103 Library Tutorial
A 15-30 minute tutorial introducing ENGL103 students to the basic level, relevant library services and resources they will need during their course.  You should complete this tutorial if you are enrolled in an ENGL103 course.  It should be completed a day or so before your scheduled library instruction session.
