FYS 1399 - Trends in Healthcare: Home

Resources you'll need to come down running for this class by using quality resources from the Baylor Libraries.

College Library Basics

College libraries are organized differently (those funny call numbers), have a greater variety of resources, and more specialist librarians than almost all of the libraries you've likely used before.  Below are some links to helpful tutorials and guides to physically navigate this new library environment.


Welcome to your first year at Baylor University.  As a college student you'll find many expectations have changed from high school and this FYS class is to help you navigate college-level research through the investigation of a specific topic.  In this case, health care trends.

This guide is designed to introduce you to some of the ways in which you'll be expected to develop new research habits or change old ones so as to be a more effective (and efficient) researcher in your college years.  I'll be introducing you to some of the techniques as well as the tools of effective research.

I am the Librarian for the Honors College, the Department of History, and the Medical Humanities Program and have worked as a librarian since 1978.  I've seen lots of change in the way research is conducted and the tools we use for research and I'll put all of that knowledge and experience at your service as your librarian.  My contact information is to the right, so please feel free to make an appointment with me, send me an email, or stop by my office to talk about your assignments and projects.  I'll be glad to help you out.

Library Happenings

Have you been invited to dance in a library?  Two years ago we invited a Texas Swing band and the Baylor Swing Dance Society to help us celebrate our collections and here's what it looked like.  We have other events coming up, social and academic, so check out our Libraries Calendar link to see what's happening here.
