Online Library Introduction (OLI)

All things OLI: links to the live presentations, asynchronous OLI, Glossary of Library Terms, and more.


The LSC-CyFair Online Library Introduction (OLI) will orient you to online library resources, services, and help.    

 You have 12 chances to take the OLI: check the schedule here.

We have OLI sessions scheduled in the morning, afternoon, and evening, so you should find one to fit your schedule! 

If not, you can take the OLI on your own time with our Asynchronous OLI options.   

  OLI is 30 minutes or less. 

We keep it short and sweet!

By the end of the OLI, you will be able to:
  1. Recall essential library services and resources available on the library webpage

  2. Identify librarians as experts from whom to seek help on research and citation

  3. List four ways to contact librarians at LSC-CyFair

 Take the post-OLI survey:

The survey helps us make sure you're learning what we're teaching and improve for next time.

If you're taking the OLI because your professor assigned it for class credit or extra credit, be sure to include your name and your professor's name so we can let them know you attended.

You could win a prize just for filling it out! Be sure to include your email address to be entered into our raffle drawing for a $25 Barnes and Noble gift card. We'll email you by the end of April to let you know if you've won.

If you have a question we don't answer on the OLI, include it and your email on the survey and we'll email you back with an answer. 

  The LSC-CyFair Library building is closed until further notice.

  Online References Services are available while we're closed.
