    LISA MURILLO IS NO ORDINARY student. As a mother and grandmother, she may seem a bit older than other students, but she didnt let that get in the way of earning her GED and serving as student speaker at Rio Salados GED Graduation in May.

    Going back to school as an adult learner requires creating new habits and breaking old ones, Murillo said. It takes focus and determination, but it can be accomplished with perseverance.

    At the age of 14, Murillo moved to Arizona from Los Angeles after her parents divorced. Two years later, she dropped out of high school when her mother moved back to California and she was forced to fend for herself.

    She survived by finding employment at a tennis court where she performed routine

    maintenance and cleaning. Murillo got married at the age of 18 and started a family soon after.

    I had always wanted my GED,

    Murillo said. It was

    something that I envisioned, but I had to

    work to keep a roof over my

    familys head.On top of her duties

    as a parent, Murillo also worked as a payroll clerk for seven years.

    Numbers were always my forte, said

    Murillo, who was eager to get back into the classroom and use her number-crunching skills. Through the GED program, Im learning all new concepts that I never knew existed.

    Now that she has her GED, Murillos career goal is to earn an associate degree in dental office management by taking advantage of the IBEST program.

    IBEST students take 24 credits of dental assisting technology classes in addition to contextualized GED instruction.

    Murillo is proud of her accomplishments and is eager to share her success story with others. Starting a new career with the right education is a life-changing experience. Its one of the best decisions Ive made, said Murillo.

    2Ask a LibrarianThe Ask a Librarian services provide students with 24-hour access to a live librarian who can answer questions about online and in-person research tools, provide links to additional information and direct students to the proper resources.

    Rio students dont always have a traditional schedule, so they love that there is a librarian on call 24/7, said Karen Docherty, Rio Salado College librarian. The chat service is designed to be convenient and easy to use. It doesnt matter if its six in the morning before they go to work or 11 at night after they get the kids to bed. All thats needed is a computer and Internet access to connect to the service and start chatting with a librarian.

    Txt a LibrarianStudents can also contact a librarian by SMS text message. The Txt a Librarian service uses a secure third party program to anonymously connect users with a Maricopa district librarian. When a student texts RioLib to 66746, their phone number is converted to a Rio Salado user ID that lets the librarian respond without viewing any personal information.

    Respecting the students privacy is really important to us, said Rio Salado College librarian Janelle Underhill. We want students to use these services with confidence. We want them to know that we arent collecting phone numbers or anything like that. Our only goal is to help students find the information they need.

    Online Writing Lab (OWL)In addition to 24-hour research assistance, Rio Salado students can also take advantage of the librarys online writing lab.

    OWL provides students with a wealth of information, tips and tricks to help them write at a college level. The Writing Rubric section covers basic elements such as sentence structure, organization and content. Other sections like General Writing and Critical Thinking cover topics such as evaluating and citing sources, paraphrasing and quoting, as well as more advanced topics like analysis, inference, and reasoning.

    How Do I? Video SeriesThere are also quite a few video tutorials available in the How Do I? section of the Rio Salado College Library web pages. The tutorials cover everything from basics like logging in or accessing an e-book to using library databases.

    The tutorial videos are a great tool to help students who prefer to do things independently, Underhill said. They walk the viewer step by step through each process. Theyre very easy to follow.

    In-Class VisitsMany course instructors invite Rio Salado librarians to visit their classes and teach students how to formulate search strategies and to use library databases to find relevant and reliable journal, magazine, newspaper articles, books, and media (such as images and streaming films).

    6District Library Services All MCCCD libraries offer free in-person, phone, Txt a Librarian and Pregntele al Bibliotecario (Chat en Espaol) services. These services are available to MCCCD students, faculty and staff. To get help from a librarian now, visit www.maricopa.edu/lts/ask.

    By Patricia Moore

    LIBRARY SERVICES SAVE THE DAY (AND NIGHT!)Starting a research assignment can be intimidating. Formulating search strategies and finding relevant, reliable sources for a paper or other project can seem overwhelming to students who have never done it before.

    Rio Salado College and the Maricopa County Community College District libraries offer several services to help students navigate the library systems, find information and properly cite sources.
