Research Assistance

Research librarians help with finding information, or using the library. You may see us in one of your classrooms, at the library’s research assistance desk, or meet us on the web. We also have a 24/7 service that provides library and research help via online chat, and dozens of online research guides.

Research Appointments/Consultations

Research librarians meet one-on-one with students and faculty to provide extended, personalized assistance with:

  • Identifying appropriate research resources in which to search
  • Using effective searching techniques and strategies
  • Using the features of online indexes/databases
  • Using research tools such as RefWorks
  • Correctly citing information sources
