Purpose of Your Visit

Please state the purpose of your visit. What specific resources at SBU Libraries do your students need to use that are not available through the school or public libraries? We are not able to arrange a visit solely to offer your students the opportunity to experience a large academic library


Indicate the measures you have taken at your library media center to prepare your students before requesting a visit to SBU Libraries. List the databases students have used. Tell us what was covered in your library research session.

If you did not use your public library, please explain why not.

Have you introduced your students to a number of free online resources that will aid their research (e.g., Google Scholar, American Memory Project, Internet Public Library, etc.)? If yes, which ones did you introduce to your students? If no, please explain why not.
