News & Announcements
The Kresge Academic Support Center is pleased to offer two new services: resume review and interview preparation. These services are available by appointment (call 971-3387, or email firstname.lastname@example.org). You may bring an electronic copy of your resume on a laptop or flash drive so that edits can be made. And, if you are applying for a specific job, please bring a copy of the job posting so that we can be sure the resume and interview preparation is targeting those specific job requirements.
The Library now provides access to an expanded set of counseling databases, including all three volumes of the "Counseling and Therapy in Video" series of training videos and reenactments, as well as footage of actual therapy sessions conducted by renowned psychiatrists, psychologists and social workers. Also newly available: the "Counseling and Psychotherapy Transcripts, Client Narratives, and Reference Works" database, which illuminates the experience of mental illness and treatment, and provides reference works to contextualize the primary material.
The new search box on the left-hand side of learning commons and library pages provides easy access to the library catalog and numerous online databases. While the traditional forms of catalog and database access remain in place for more in-depth searching, Discovery Search is designed for convenient, quick searching of multiple library resources.
