Digital resources offered by the Shelton Learning Commons and Burton Center for Student Success

Though you may be learning from home, that doesn’t mean faculty and staff aren’t offering a host of great resources you can take advantage of. Specifically, both the Shelton Learning Commons and the Burton Center for Student Success have begun offering most of their resources digitally for students and faculty to use.

Here’s a quick rundown of the services offered and where you can find them.

Shelton Learning Commons Resources

First of all, make sure to check out the Your Library Online guide. There, you can find links to databases, helpful subject guides, and resources for isolation (films on demand, language learning software, and even graduate school entrance exam practice tests).

Need a little human interaction? Librarians are holding normal hours through a virtual reference desk. You can ask questions, get help with research, and even receive recommendations on their next audiobook or ebook to keep yourself entertained. In addition to calls and email, you can also chat with Shelton Learning Commons staff via Skype (primarily for messaging) and Zoom (primarily for video conferencing).

Find specific contact information and hours, along with answers to other questions you may have, on the FAQ webpage.

Burton Center for Student Success Resources

On the bottom floor of the Shelton Learning Commons, you’ll find the Burton Center for Student Success and the Ratchford Writing Center. Services are now offered remotely, including writing assistance, tutoring, and exam preparation.
