Welcome to the Summer Institute 2022 Library Research Seminars Guide! We're excited to work with you in your library research seminars in Weeks 2 and 3. In these seminars, you'll learn about library resources and services that will help and support you as you work on your ES 112 writing assignments (and in your classes beyond those you take in SI!) 

If you have questions about the library, the library seminars, or finding sources, please feel free to email your seminar librarian (see the lefthand column for librarian contact information).
