About Your Instructor

Connecting Google Drive Account to your Canvas Classes

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 information linked here to the left and right. The class syllabus has the information for the class-you should print this out. There are also instructions on how to get set up and logged into Canvas (our online class environment) via Lobo Apps, how to navigate, communicate and submit assignments, and how to connect your Google Drive account to our class if you want to. 

Please feel free to contact me with any questions. You can:

  • Email/Message me through the Inbox function in the class environment (Inbox is on the left side of the class homepage and is the primary way we communicate in class). This is the best way to get a hold of me as I am always checking my Inbox in class.
  • Call me at my office at (831) 645-1382. If I am not there please leave a message. Not on campus during the summer and Campus/Library Closed for Summer Session. You can leave a message and it should get forwarded to me but the Inbox in Canvas is your best bet.
  • Ask for help from any reference librarian on duty at the MPC Library Reference Desk or call the Reference Desk at (831) 646-4262.  Campus/Library Closed for Summer Session.
  • Email me directly at with any questions or problems (though it is best to contact me via Inbox in the class).
  • You should expect a response from me within 24 hours.

Make sure you log into the class on the first day of class...the semester begins Monday, June 8th. Those that do not log into the class the first three days of class (by Wednesday, June 10th) and complete all the first due assignments by their due date will be dropped from the class. Since this is an online class it is important to keep on top of things. If you run into any problems please let me know...communication is important! Unit 1 Assignments (Syllabus Quiz, Student Intro Biography and Assignment 1) are all due by Wednesday, June 10th at 11pm. We start out quick but Unit 1 is pretty painless to do.

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

Instruction/Reference Librarian (and your instructor for Library 50)

Class will be available online starting Friday morning, June 5th...the Friday before the semester starts
