Library Overview for Tutors: Welcome Library Ambassadors

A go-to library resource for student tutors.


As tutors, you are also Library ambassadors. 


Students often see the SSTC, ITS, and the Library as the same unit, and a tutor is often the first person students see to receive assistance. We need your help to get your peers to the right resource. 

Just like you have developed strategies for assisting others in a subject, the library faculty also have expertise but in research. Research goes well beyond where to click in databases. Sometimes, assignments are deceptively easy, and we have strategies to help students think through the process and know what questions to ask. 

Just like we refer students to the SSTC, we also expect tutors to point students to librarians for research needs via the Research Help Desk or library chat.
