If you see this box pop up on the AU Libraries website, it’s not an AI bot-there’s a live human on the other side ready to assist you. Librarians and staff will be online to monitor the chat Mondays-Fridays between 9:15am and 4:15pm (minus a noon hour lunch break for the humans). We are happy to assist you with everything from quick questions or in-depth research.
If you see the small chat icon in the corner, you can also start a chat this way. If there is no one online at the time your message will be saved, and we’ll get back to you soon.

Congratulations to Scholes Library student employee Tyreek Ormil on being selected as Alfred University’s Sportsman of the Year!
The Empire 8 Conference emphasizes that “Competing with Honor and Integrity” is an essential component of a student-athlete’s experience in conjunction with an institution’s educational mission. Tyreek embodies these traits on and off the field. Tyreek is known for his reliability, hard work and positive attitude.
Information literacy is not just for research projects! Alfred University Librarians Kevin Adams, Samantha Dannick, John Hosford, and Mechele Romanchock will present a brief overview of information literacy theory followed by practical strategies for fact-checking, avoiding misinformation, and applying information literacy concepts in daily life as well as in the classroom.
The panel presentation will be Thursday, November, 10th in-person from 12:10 to 1:00pm in Nevins Theatre, Powell Campus Center.
For those not able to make it to Nevins, there is a Zoom link which is the same each week.
The Bergren Forum is sponsored by the Division of Human Studies and the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences. Bring a brown bag lunch if you wish. Coffee and tea will be provided.
But people who Zoom in will have to make their own tea or coffee.
