I was pretty new to the whole library system here at Oregon State, so jumping in head first was very educational and resourceful, something I will remember for future research projects/papers/etc. Having someone to reach out to for my first experience was definitely a plus. Since I didn’t find much time between classes and before 5pm, I was unable able to utilize the library chat function but that is something I would like to do in the future and find that option to be very handy.While researching for the cultural site project, trying to find information on not only the person I had selected but cultural outlooks from another country and focused topics, I found that utilizing the school’s library network was on the beginning to how far the network actually expanded too. I was able to find videos, news articles from magazines, local newspaper writings as well as books and more educational resources that I am more familiar with. The network has an amazing amount of different resources to pull from. Research through here has definitely expanded the horizon for my research ability, rather then the normal “googling” of topics, which will of course still be used but now I have options!
