Message from SOLES Librarian V. Dozier

Welcome back, y'all! I look forward to supporting your learning, research, and service efforts this year :-) 

Immediate concerns:
  • Before you purchase course texts, check Copley's collection & your syllabi to see if your course texts are available free-to-you at Copley Library. See this video for more info.
  • Before you buy research or clinical texts, reach out to me. I always seek high quality resources to add to our Copley collection.
  • My appointment calendar is open for September 2021 appointments. I offer 3 types of appointments - research, instruction, and bibliometric. I typically open my calendar for 2-3 weeks at a time.
