Rick Benoit: Library User of the Month April 2015

Rick Benoit

Addictions Counseling Student

“MHC/ Vera Bracken Library has been a
valuable resource for me and my studies.
I am in my second year here at Medicine
Hat College and I will be moving on to the
University of Lethbridge. I have utilized
the resources provided regularly, and have
found the staff to be extremely friendly and
helpful every time that I have asked. I am
very pleased with my experiences here in
the library and the skills that I have been
able to develop. Researching databases,
fi nding books, using the computers and
writing in APA are only some of the skills
I have learnt while working in the library.
These skills will be a huge benefi t to me
moving forward towards obtaining my
degree. Thank you V.B.L.”

Lynett Getz - Library User of the Month March

Lynette Getz

Social Work Student

“The library at MHC is one of the college’s best assets. Great atmosphere and the staff is super friendly, accommodating and go above and beyond to help. We as students are very fortunate to have the calibre of staff and facility available for our use.

I love the messaging feature on the library website and the ability to have questions answered when I am working on research projects at home: it has saved my sanity many, many times.”
