Library 50-Section 1311: Instructor Sandy Switzer: Home

Welcome to Library 50!


Thank you for enrolling in LIBR 50, "Introduction to Library and Research Skills." This information page will help you get started with the class. Make sure you look at the links and videos here to the right. The class syllabus has the information for the class-you should print this out. There are also instructions and a video tutorial on how to get set up and logged into Canvas (our online class environment) via Lobo Apps.

This online class officially begins Monday, October 15...make sure you login to the class by the first day. Assignment #1, your Student Biography, and the Syllabus Quiz are all due by Wednesday, October 17 at 11pm. If you do not successfully start the class (submit Assignment #1) you may be dropped from the class.

Since this is an 8 week online class, it is important to keep on top of things. If you run into any problems or have questions please let me know...communication is important! You can: 

  • Email me using the Canvas Inbox (the primary way we communicate in class). This is the best way to contact me as I check my Inbox daily.
  • Email me at
  • Call the department at (831) 646-4095. If I am not there please leave a message.
  • Ask for help from any reference librarian on duty at the MPC Library reference desk or call the reference desk at (831) 646-4262.

I look forward to working with you...please feel free to ask questions and good luck with the class!
