30-Second Welcome from the Business Librarian
Some Spring 2013 testimonials from students
"Thank you for all this help, it is making research very less stressful."
"Thank you very much, that would have taken me forever if I was searching by myself."
"I wanted to thank you for all of your helpful feedback about research for my business projects. It was a pleasure to meet you last Friday, and I will definitely be in touch with you more throughout the semester."
"Thanks for all of your help and guidance along the way, Steve, we couldn't have done it without you."
"Thank you for all of those suggestions! We will take those to heart as we edit our presentation this weekend."
"Steve I think you deserve one of those university awards if they have one for best teacher/ librarian/ life-saver, you deserve it."
