Your Voice

“I thought my generation had "graduated" from using libraries but I had no idea how many resources I would use at Alkek. It's not just books. It's the study spaces, computer labs decked out with Adobe Suite and Microsoft Office, and the staff there to help you find the magazine, textbook, or database you need.”

--Liann Shannon, Senior, Social Work, Journalism, & Art/Design, BGS.
