The Information Age has brought with it new challenges for students, researchers, and patrons of the traditional library. Because of the tremendous increase in and availability of information, it can be an overwhelming task to determine where and how to search for desired answers. One of the main purposes of the David O. McKay Library is to assist patrons in using library resources to accomplish educational pursuits and prepare for life-long learning. A variety of methods are used to accomplish this purpose. Included are orientations, one-on-one help, self-guided tours, pamphlets, instructions in using materials and databases, and a Library Research Skills Class which is offered each block to assist students in better use of library resources.
