Just before the information session, there will be a faculty tour of the Andrew L. Bouwhuis library beginning at the library service desk at 4:00 p.m. The library is a complex organization with much to offer students, faculty and staff through its services, facilities and staff expertise. Its librarians are keen to support your teaching and research as well as your students’ learning. This tour is a great way to get to know the library.
