Reference Research Assistance

Ask for help with all your research needs.


Do you need help finding information or using the library?  The librarian is available to assist students, faculty, and staff.   Librarians are trained professionals who help library users find information needed for papers and other projects. Our librarians guide patrons to resources and ensure the development of necessary skills to meet research needs.  We offer individual consultations by appointment to discuss research needs or demonstrate an electronic searching resource.   Please contact us and let us help with your information needs.

Librarians can help you:

  • find information (books, articles, and more)
  • choose the most relevant databases for your topic
  • develop and improve your research strategy
  • critically evaluate information
  • cite sources properly
  • find facts and statistical data
  • locate library materials

Ask a Librarian an online reference service that enables you and a reference staff member to chat online and share web pages in real-time. At the end of each session, you will receive a transcript of the entire session. Connect now:

Our mission is to facilitate access to information through direct personal service to library patrons, and by support the campus instructional program through the provision of formal and informal library and bibliographic instruction. We introduce students, faculty, administration, and staff to strategies of research and resources available and teach them how to use them effectively.
