Welcome to UVA, all! I’m Maggie Nunley and I’m a Science and Engineering librarian here at UVA. I work as a liaison to Computer Science and STS classes so you’ll see me around a lot. I’ll be your narrator for this library tour.
This is going to be another out-of-the-ordinary semester. So that you know where to go for updates or any changes to Library operations, we have two resources already set up for you. For a quick at-a-glance updates, go to our Status Dashboard [library.virginia.edu/status] and for more detailed information, the Covid-19 Library Resources FAQ is at [library.virginia.edu/news/covid-19/]. BTW – I’m going to include any links I mention below the videos on each of these pages so they’re easy to access!
But first - How should you do this tour? It is up to you! I created it so that it was flexible whether we have a mask mandate (which we do!) or if we end up in quarantine again. For that flexibility, there are a few different formats available. If you find that you need accommodations that require a different format, please let me know. My email is firstname.lastname@example.org or you can schedule a zoom appointment with me at bit.ly/libmaggie
This content can be viewed before exploring the library buildings or they’re also set to work if you start them at the entrance of each library location and work your way through the buildings. So grab a friend, explore the libraries, and get to know all the many ways the Library is here to help you succeed.
Once you’ve watched all ten videos, to get credit for STS 1500 for completing the library tour, there’s a survey in the last tab on the left, titled “STS 1500 Tour Confirmation,” that you need to complete. You have from August 30th until Septmeber 12th to complete the tour.
If you have any questions, feel free to reach out!
