Notice: Fall 2020 Semester

Research Consultation with a Librarian

Your librarians are happy to help with your research, and can assist you in a number of ways:

  • Contact your librarians via email and one of them will reply. You may also contact a specific librarian via email or phone, or set up a virtual meeting via Zoom. (See contact information here.)
    • Librarians are typically available Monday through Friday, 10:00 am to 6:00 pm.
    • They can assist you in selecting and searching in databases for journal articles, selecting appropriate subject headings to locate books using our catalog, and much more.
  • For reference or research assistance, you may also email your query. Look for a response within 48 hours, excluding weekends. Librarians will make every attempt to answer your question(s) or refer you to a source to obtain your answer.
