Hello, ISU-Meridian students and faculty!
The ISU-Meridian library page is also the “Idaho Health Sciences Library” page, and it can be found at https://www.isu.edu/library/libandcoll/ihsl/. I encourage you to think of the library as a virtual space – all our resources are available to you online, and can even be accessed off campus with your ISU login!
Reminder- We are no longer sharing space with the high school library. We do have a physical library space that is still under construction. As of June 2018, one of the former computer labs (room 505) is set up as a quiet study space.
My name is Kristin Whitman, and I am the current librarian in Meridian. Library hours are currently held out of office 508A, on the first floor of the building. Library hours in Meridian are posted at http://isu.libcal.com/hours/. Please stop by with your questions! My door is always open and I am ready to help. You can also call me at (208) 373-1817, or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you need help using our database resources, a number of helpful tutorials are available on the ISU Libraries YouTube channel.
For subject-specific help, you can also select research guides by subject from the “Research Help” section of the Health Sciences Library page.
Finally, please stop by my office anytime to say hi and introduce yourself! I’m here to help.
