CSUN Student and Faculty Orientations Prepare for Fall Semester

Oviatt LibraryWith the fall semester quickly approaching the campus is abuzz with orientations that support new CSUN students and faculty. Many staff, faculty members and campus departments have collaborated for these events and the Library is playing a part within these activities as well. On most weekdays during August, you will be able to find a librarian or two at the New Student Orientation Resource Fairs hosted by the Office of Student Involvement and Development. Held at the Matador Bookstore Complex between noon and 1 p.m. on many weekdays through August 22, these booths provide new students with the opportunity to find out about Library resources and services. Many students stop by our booths and learn about the Library’s online resources; in-person and virtual librarian research support; computer availability and group study room access and reservations system. Sometimes students simply pick up our Library fall hours schedule. Please stop by our booths and say hello and feel free to ask us a question.

The campus New Faculty Orientation, hosted by Faculty Development, will be taking place on Wednesday, August 20 and Thursday, August 21 in the Oviatt Library’s Jack and Florence Ferman Presentation Room. During these two days new CSUN faculty will be welcomed and introduced to many campus departments and resources and services to support their smooth transition into the fall semester and within the CSUN campus community. The Oviatt Library is pleased to play a role in welcoming new faculty members and CSUN students as well.

Campus Orientation Welcomes New Faculty at the Library

In addition to the many new students who will be descending upon campus in the upcoming days and weeks, more than 50 new faculty members will be joining the CSUN academic community for the 2012-2013 school year. In fact, the campus New Faculty Orientation will be held on August 21 and 22 in the Library’s Jack & Florence Ferman Presentation Room. Coordinated by Faculty Development, a program of the CIELO Center, the two-day orientation will provide faculty not only with basic campus information to help orientate them in their new setting but also provide them with quite a few sessions to support a smooth transition. Faculty attending the event will have the opportunity to meet other new faculty members and CSUN campus leaders. Current technologies utilized on campus and within the classroom will be discussed as well as many opportunities to explore the nuances of connecting with students and faculty. We at the Library are especially excited about the event. Library Subject Specialists will be present and take new faculty members on a tour of the Library. Of course, these are just highlights of the event since so much more will be shared. However, it promises to be two days filled with ideas and support for creating an amazing first year on campus and within the Library. Welcome to all new CSUN faculty!NFO invite
