Introduction

Welcome to the LOOP, your online orientation to all that the Brooklyn College Library has to offer. We hope that after you have taken this virtual tour you will have a clear sense of how your library works, where you can study, how you can locate information for your research, where you can use a computer, and where you can ask for help.

Layout

Please take a moment to get acquainted with the layout of this website. Notice the navigation menu on the left-hand side — this column appears on every page and allows you to pick and choose which areas of the site you want to visit. The image in the upper right-hand corner will change with each corresponding page to help you get acquainted with how the Library looks and what you should expect to find in each area. The yellow sticky note on the right-hand side also appears on every page and summarizes the contents of the page for you.

Quiz

Whenever you feel comfortable doing so, you can click on the quiz link at the bottom of any page to proceed to the English 1010 Library Workshop quiz. (For more detailed information on the English 1010 requirement and the quiz, you can read the complete instructions [PDF].) In order to receive your certificate of completion, you must successfully pass this quiz. Do not fret, though! The quiz is open-book — that is, you can keep the LOOP open in one browser window while you complete the quiz in another window. We are not interested in seeing how well you memorize information. Rather, we want to make sure that you are made aware of everything the Library offers. For this reason, the quiz can be taken as many times as necessary to receive a passing grade.
