While student support and academic resources may vary from campus to campus, students can seek out assistance in a variety of ways to help them throughout their academic career. For instance, remember the card catalog? Your students don’t. They instead must know effective online research strategies and develop information literacy skills. Fortunately, most libraries provide instructional services and resources to guide your students along the way. In addition, because every university is unique, it offers various and unique programs that support learning. Academic resources such as tutoring, peer mentoring, and writing instruction are essential to providing students the foundation they need to be successful. Inarguably, academic resources now extend well beyond the traditional model of faculty knowledge and textbook content. The Internet has created current, robust, and engaging resources.
