This guide explains how to access library resources and assistance for students enrolled in accelerated and/or fully online courses in nursing and school administration.

Virtual Reference Appointments

Students enrolled in an online degree program can request online reference appointments with the Nursing Librarian.

How to attend

Attending a virtual meeting is simple.  The librarian will send you an email invite with a meeting number, password and link to the meeting hosted by WebEx.  Just click on the link, a sign-up screen should pop up, type your name as you would like it to be displayed in the meeting, and join the meeting.  Enter the meeting number and password if requested.

WebEx can be accessed from a web browser on PC, Mac, and Linux environments.  Some systems may require you to upload WebEx.  Please open and run the program, you can delete the upload later by clearing your history. 

What to expect

When you join a meeting, you should see the name of librarian hosting the meeting.  You will have the opportunity to see the librarian’s computer screen in real time as conduct the webinar and demonstrate database searches.  There are chat and audio features for easier communication.
