FYE Consultations: Home


What to Expect

Talking with a librarian or library staff member is very beneficial for your research needs. Whether you have a research question or not, we want to talk with you about how using the library can be helpful throughout your time as a student of Kent State Stark.  We will spend a short amount of time (about 15-20 minutes) introducing you to the general layout of library, the personal services offered, and the academic services available.  If you need assistance with an assignment or have a research need, we will aide you in finding the appropriate information.

Free Printing

100 Pages of Free Printing!

Students that meet with a librarian for a FYE consultation will get rewarded with 100 pages of free printing!  This offer is only valid in the library for the Fall 2018 semester.   

Campus Involvement Activity

The FYE program requires you attend at least three Campus Involvement Activities.  We offer an opportunity to attend an informative session that will easily fit into your schedule.  For more information about First Year Experience, please click here.

Free Spring Textbooks

Win Your Spring 2018 Textbooks!

The library will buy textbooks for one randomly selected FYE student that meets with a library staff member for a consultation.  

  • The textbooks will belong to the Kent State Stark Library.
  • The student will be able to check out the books for the whole semester.
  • The books will be given back at the end of the Spring 2018 semester and put into the library collection.
  • The student must attend a consultation with a library staff member to be entered.

All students that meet with a librarian for an FYE consultation will be entered into an Excel Spreadsheet and the winner will be selected with a random generator.  The winner will be emailed so we can get your schedule and buy the appropriate books.

How to Set Up a Consult

This library consultation can be scheduled or you can drop in.  Scheduling the session ensures you will have a library staff member available.  You can also drop into the library at any time.  However, you may have to wait until someone is available to meet.

To schedule a consultation, fill out the Research Appointment Request Form.
