LIBBIS FOR COMPOSITION/ HONR 303 STUDENTS

Explore research topics within your discipline and discover a variety of discipline-related resources, skills and tools! You will attend one LIBBI-303COMP session as part of your Composition course. 

WHEN
For the Summer 2018 sessions, LIBBIs are scheduled during your regular class time, so your professor will give you the date.

WHAT YOU NEED TO DO
There is nothing to do in preparation for the LIBBI. If, however, you are not familiar with library resources and services, or have not attended a library workshop, such as LIBBI-102COMP, it may be helpful to stop by the reference counter to meet with a librarian for a brief introduction to the ORU Library. Composition 303 students do not need to sign up in Vision since the LIBBI-303COMP sessions are scheduled during your class time.

WHAT TO BRING
You will need your network login (SSO). If your login does not work, contact the IT Concierge Desk at 918.495.6321, studenthelpdesk@oru.edu, or it.oru.edu. 

See: Composition 303, Course Research Guide.
See your course syllabus for more information on the LIBBI requirement.
