  • What process to check citation styles? 
  • What tools would you like to see that can make it easier to assess information sources in papers?

Citing Insights is a Library Student Project to develop a useful tool for faculty, staff, librarians, graduate & teaching assistants and tutors to evaluate information literacy and citations in student papers. So please let us know what you want to see. We aim to provide a beta-version this fall. The long-term goals of the project is to build a tool to improve student research and writing. 

We greatly appreciate your time, hope you enjoy this opportunity to shape a useful tool, and enjoy lunch and the conversations. If you have any questions about the project, please let me know at: Cyril.Oberlander@Humboldt.edu or x3441.

Two Long Time SFS Employees to Retire

The Staff in Student Financial Services would like to congratulate the retirement of two long time SFS employees of Humboldt State. Glenda Rotherham has been with HSU for 37 years and Debbie Snead for 33 years. Both employees have worked their entire HSU career in Student Financial Services, starting back in the days when the Cashier's Office was located in the Annex Building. It will be a huge loss to the department and the campus.  We wish them all the best in their new adventures.
