For the past few years, our panel discussion, "The Penn Libraries: Secrets to Students Success", has provided students and their families an overview of all that the Penn Libraries has to offer while giving insider tips and advice to help new students get started their academic careers started on the right foot.
The Q&A portion of the event, in particular, has given students and their parents some tools that they needed and reassured them that the libraries and our librarians are here to support their academic success. During our current time of uncertainty, when so much is unclear about how students can thrive and still make the most of a very unique situation, this information is even more valuable.
Of all the events we have planned, this panel discussion has the opportunity to check off all the key components of what we want to share with students -- our libraries, our people, and our knowledge.
Since we believe that this is a prime opportunity for both students and their parents to engage with our librarians directly, we want to provide opportunities for students to access this information live and remotely from across the world. Three sessions will be available to accommodate the viewers in various time zones, both domestically and internationally.
