Resources for Student Success


Orientation to College Learning

University of Houston students have a new resource for building study skills and achieving academic success.

UH Libraries, in partnership with Learning Support Services, has curated a collection of books focused on helping students get ahead in academics. The growing collection, including titles promoting smart study skills and time management such as Orientation to College Learning, also has resources that are tailored for particular student populations, including first-generation, nontraditional and international students. Selections also include books on understanding specific academic disciplines.

This collection is accessible on the first floor of the MD Anderson Library, and available for check-out.

More information on this student success initiative can be found in the September/October 2015 issue of American Libraries Magazine (open PDF). The article, Improving Retention: Leveraging collections for student success, was authored by psychology and social work librarian Irene Ke, library specialist for liaison services Kristine Greive, and biology and biochemistry librarian Porcia Vaughn.
