Happy New Year, Sun Devils! Welcome to the spring 2023 semester. Did you make New Year’s resolutions for what you want to accomplish this year? Here are five library goals to make the most of your semester.

Reach out to Ask a Librarian

Get your questions answered via chat, text, email or phone. If you are lost or confused, or just don’t know where to start, Ask a Librarian can connect you with library professionals who are standing by to help.

Visit a different library

Did you know ASU has many libraries across four campuses? Maybe you study at Hayden Library, but did you know there is a Music Library with vinyl collections you can check out? Make time to visit a new library near you. For overnight studying during the semester, Noble Library is your 24/5 library.

Explore a library guide

Library guides are your go-to resource for specific subjects or courses. From reviewing citation styles to studying design justice to learning about patents, there is a library guide to help you dive deeper into many topics.

Strengthen your research skills

Do you want to improve your skills when searching for scholarly research articles? Or learn how to develop a strong research question? ASU Library offers dozens of tutorials for you that cover everything from citing sources to copyright and fair use. 

Activate your free digital subscriptions

ASU students, faculty and staff receive free digital subscriptions to the New York Times and the Wall Street Journal. Activate your subscriptions today to get access to the latest news, recipes and stories from around the world.

Discover more services

Of course, there is more to discover at the ASU Library. From untold stories and history in the archives to 3D printing in the Makerspace to browsing Sun Devil Reads, take time to explore the many services and departments available to help you succeed. And if you need help, we’re here for you.
