College Students Find Help at The Barry-Lawrence Regional Library

More and more students are taking online college classes remotely from home, and many are turning to their trusted local librarian to get extra help.

A Barry-Lawrence Regional Librarian can be mailed students tests and act as a "proctor" administering the exam. The librarian observes the test-taker and then sends the paperwork back to the University. "BlrLibrarian's" mission is to help people connect to knowledge, so they are a great all-around resource to those enrolled in college courses. Carolyn (Librarian in Pierce City) says "This week I was able to help a young woman with citations for a college paper for an online college class. She had a sample format, but didn't understand what it meant. I was able to answer her questions about the different parts of a research paper and what the citation numbers signified. It feels great to help these patrons, and they truly seem to appreciate these services. I go out of my way try to make patrons feel welcome when they come to the Library, and we are always trying to find new ways to help them."
