New library service offers help in Tri-Towers

Students no longer have to make the trip to the library for research and paper writing help. A new library service program called KSUlibrary2U is available to students from 7 to 10 p.m. Monday through Thursday in Tri-Towers.

“For students who live in the dorms, it’s easier to go to Tri-Towers rather than having to truck down to the library,” said Rebecca Kleinhaut, library and information science graduate student. “We help with citation issues, reference questions and can even help with proofreading a paper.”

Kleinhaut and Leslie Whiteford, library and information science graduate student, started KSUlibrary2U to help bring library services to students living on campus.

“A lot of students don’t know where to start with reference help or projects,” Whiteford said. “We make it easy to get started.”

They expect the program to become more popular and useful to students when it gets closer to finals.

“We’re hoping that it will speed up,” Whiteford said. “Students will be able to walk up with a quick question about something.”

Emily Horwatt, junior pre-accounting major, said she could see herself using the services.

“If I still lived in Tri-Towers, I would use it for proofreading since you don’t need to make an appointment like in the library’s writing center,” Horwatt said.

The KSUlibrary2U program takes place next to ResNet services in the Tri-Towers rotunda.
