We are so excited that you are here, even if you're not really "here." We have a page of information specifically for undergraduates that answers many of the questions you might have, particularly about how the library can help you when you cannot be on campus.
Please feel free to email me with any questions about the Library, not just for your writing sem.
Bibliographic management tools enable you to store library sources in your own personal database and then incorporate the citations seamlessly into your research paper in whatever format your writing seminar requires. Within these tools you can take also notes on the books and articles you find and search those notes by keyword.
