GURU FAQs

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!
