Posted on: August 30, 2017

Welcome (back) to campus! As you settle into the fall semester, we invite you to try some of these 7 things that we bet you didn’t know you could do at JMU Libraries:

VR Icon

Design and 3D print your own creations and explore virtual reality in the Makeries. Find these new makerspaces in the basement of Carrier and the 1st floor of Rose.

Camera Icon

Learn media production techniques with MadLab. These free, hands-on workshops cover iMovie, InDesign, infographics, photography, and more.

Books Icon

Make citations and bibliographies easy with RefWorks, an online citation management tool. If you’re trying RefWorks for the first time, you’ll create an account with your JMU email address.

Calendar Icon

Schedule an appointment with a librarian. The librarians are eager to work with students and faculty at any stage of the research process.

Music Icon

Experience the world of music at the Music Library, with CDs, vinyl, sheet music, and online music. New this year: check out vinyl & CDs for 4 weeks.

Computer Icon

Explore tons of free online images, videos, ebooks, articles & more. These are all in huge “databases” that are not open to the general public – but they’re available to you with your JMU login!

Screen Icon

Learn new skills to advance your career with free streaming tutorials from Lynda.com. These tutorials cover hundreds of topics such as online marketing,  data analysis, and filmmaking.

We hope you have a great academic year!
