Drop-In Help Sessions
Your Chemistry instructors will provide you with a link to the drop-in schedule via a Canvas announcement.
Follow the instructions in the announcement to pick a day and time that suits your schedule for the library drop-in session.
Librarians are also available during most of the library's open hours to help with any of your CHEM 142 questions.
Students will be researching the pros and cons of an assigned topic. Students should check their Canvas shell for their assigned topic and more details.

If in doubt, check with your instructor.
Question: If I find a document on a website, like a government document or a research paper, from a .gov or a .edu, that's in a separate pdf file, not the webpage itself, is it a document or a website?
Answer: For Chemistry 142, treat these are documents. They do not count as a website.
