Tip of the Week

The reference librarians at McCarthy Library have developed some tips to help students research effectively.  We're excited to share our knowledge of information resources with the NVC community.  Below you will find .pdfs of the "Tip of the Week" which we have begun to share as of November 2011.  They are written and posted twice a month. We hope you find them useful!
