Welcome to Oxford new students and welcome back returning students! With a new semester starting we wanted to provide you with a Library Starter Kit to help you start your semester right.
Looking for a place to study or meet with your club?
Library study rooms are located on the second floor of the library and are open for use from during all library hours and can be booked for up to 3 hours.
The library checks out a huge variety of technology, from laptops and iPads to projectors and button makers.
Beyond the technology available for checkout, the library has computers available for students with software such as Adobe Creative Suite and ArcMap.
The library has a black and white, and a color printer available for use. The easiest way to print either at the library or at any Emory printer is to upload your document to EaglePrint’s MyPrintCenter. Once your document has been uploaded and your print options selected, you then just need to swipe your Emory ID at either of the library printers.
Need help with a class project or research? The library is here to support you!
If you ever have quick question such as having trouble finding an article or creating a citation you can:
- Live Chat: Access library staff via chat by clicking the start chat button on the Ask a Librarian page. You can also find the chat on the library’s homepage.
- Text: Quick and direct, just text your question to (770) 415-8963
Need more in-depth help on a project you can book a research appointment with a librarian. This is a 30-minute one-on-one appointment with a librarian who can help you with finding sources, developing a research question, or any research related questions you may have. You can even schedule an appointment for your whole group if you need help with a group project.
Just looking for a place to start your research look through the Oxford Library Research Guides. These guides are designed to help you find the best databases or resources for a discipline or class.
Need a break?
Don’t spend all your time this semester on studying! The library encourages everyone to take a break and relax and, in this pursuit, we try are best to provide leisure resources to the Oxford College Community. The library has a great collection of popular reading including our large graphic novel collection.
The library also purchases a host of other popular reading which can be browsed on the first floor of the building or you can search for titles in Library Search. You can request books from any of the Emory libraries and pick them up at Oxford Library. Additionally check out the Emory Libraries Overdrive Collection, if you enjoy reading eBooks or audiobooks.
Want a book but, Emory Library’s doesn’t own it feel free to suggest a purchase!
Finally check out a board game from the libraries extensive game collection. If you like board games, look forward to the Library’s Game Night a semesterly event where the library invites all students to play games and enjoy food and treats at the library. Game night this semester will be on October 20th, 2023 8pm-12am.
We hope this starter kit helps you have a smooth semester, but if you ever have any questions always feel free to reach out to library staff!
