Research Skills Classes & Library Tours

MaryAlice Wade serves as the Coordinator of Bibliographic Instruction and Library Tours. These services are available to faculty, staff and students of Fort Hays State University, and to schools in the surrounding area. Research Skills classes can be comprehensive or focused on a specific discipline or subject area, depending on your needs. Each tour or class is led by one of our Reference Librarians: MaryAlice Wade, Angela Barger, Lynn Haggard or Judy Salm. Classes are held in the library, or in your mediated classroom. Individual tours and instruction are also available.

Please schedule groups at least one week in advance.
