What is a “library GURU”?
GURU stands for: “Guides for Utilizing (Library) Resources at USF“. These GURUs are students (just like you) who have been trained by research librarians to answer questions, such as:
- How do I go to find scholarly sources for my paper?
- What’s a “library database” and how do I search it?
- How do I search the library’s catalog for books?
- What is MLA (or APA) style? How do I make a basic citation?
- I have the call number for a book, but I can’t find it. HELP!
How do I connect with a Library GURU?
Glad you asked. There are a few ways you can reach us:
- The “hotspot” locations for GURUs will be on the 1-5th floor of the Library, the Marshall Center, and the study lounge on the 2nd floor of Argos. Hours will vary, so check with the schedule or look for the green and white shirts.
- Follow us and the USF Library on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.
- Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org »
Will the GURU be able to answer all of my questions?
We can help you kickstart your research and find some great library resources. However, if you have in-depth questions and require more extensive library help, please contact a research librarian online or in person »
