During the first two weeks of term, the Library will be holding a brief introduction to Library resources and services called Library 101. Students can get essential tips on Library staff such as computer access, printing, finding course materials, and getting help. Anyone can drop in to these as needed, offered daily at 11am, Monday to Friday, from September 6-16.
During Orientation Week, students can drop by the SLC Ampitheatre on Thursday, September 1, 10am-11am for Get Vibrant with Vive! During this event, students can try out the HTC Vive, a virtual reality (VR) headset that transforms your environment into a 3D space! The Vive headset includes motion tracked handheld controllers which allows the user to vividly manipulate objects and experience immersive gaming environments. Students can learn how to use the Vive and other digital technologies in the Library’s Digital Media Experience Lab (DME), located on the 3rd floor of the Student Learning Centre (SLC). The Vive experience will be projected onto a screen for group viewing, along with other media content to help new students learn more about the Ryerson University Library & Archives (RULA) and the resources offered at the Student Learning Centre.
The Library will also have a table at the Central Orientation’s Campus Services and Involvement Fair on Thursday, September 1, 2016 from 2:30-4p.m. around the Kerr Quad. Students can drop by to talk to some of our friendly library staff about the many resources and services we offer.
