About the guide

Welcome to the SBU University Libraries orientation guide. This guide is an introduction to the many resources available to you as a student at Southwest Baptist University. 

To access all library resources, please visit the SBU Libraries website. Feel free to contact the library by phone, email, text, or instant message with any questions, or if you need additional information. Contact information and library hours are linked in the sidebar on this page and throughout the guide. 

Library Competencies

These are the library competencies we hope students gain through this guide:

I. The student will be able to explain the information need. (CE & CT)

II. The student will be able to use sources in research. (CT)

VI. The student will be able to identify the library as a place in the learning process.

Please Note: The abbreviations above coincide with SBU’s student learning outcomes.

  • Communicate Effectively (CE)
  • Critical Thinking (CT)

At the end of this guide students will be asked to rate their confidence in each competency, and to reflect on how their understanding of these competencies might affect their work as a student.
