First Year Seminars: Welcome


Welcome to CU & to the University Libraries' Community!

Your librarians are available to help you make the transition to the university academic environment. As a first-year student, you will encounter new opportunities, new environments, and new communities. Your librarians can help you along the way.

We can help you to: 

  • Navigate research assignments and course readings
  • Turn your curiosity into researchable questions
  • Locate and explore information environments
