I'm Margery Ashmun, the Personal Librarian for this seminar.  I'll be contacting you several times over the course of your first year here at Drew to offer help in any of your research needs, not just for this seminar!

This guide will help you:

  • Locate helpful information.
  • Learn tricks to make using the Library easier.
  • Identify where you can get help with writing. 

When you're done here, take a look at the LibGuide "Library 101" for helpful videos and information that all incoming Drew students should know about the Library.
