This service is not to replace the computer classes already offered by the library.

What will the assistant do for me during our appointment?
Our approach will be to guide you through the task you are trying to accomplish. If you are applying for a job, we will guide you through the online application process, including the posting of your resume. We can walk you through using a computer to access the databases that will aid you in your research. During our time together, you will learn the skills to complete your task or research on your own.
