Did You Know? 

Library ChatBot 

In March, the library launched Chatbot as part of its chat reference service. Chatbot is an interactive flowchart that provides answers to the library’s most asked questions. It presents patrons with a menu of topics and uses a combination of information pulled from the South College Library website, pre-set messages, and our FAQs to answer patron questions. If the Chatbot responses don’t fit your needs, you’ll be sent to a live chat operator for assistance. Have a library question? Give Chatbot a Try!

Study Tip: Maintain a Clutter-free Study Space

Maintaining a neat and clutter-free learning area eradicates distractions and permits you to focus on what matters. Don’t have a space like that at home? Do your studying at your campus’s library or resource center! For more study tips, go to the library’s How to Study guide.
