Research Experts

Don’t forget the librarians! They are your most powerful resource in becoming successful researchers.

Be sure to stop in and meet your Personal Librarian so that when a research project comes along, you can reconnect and get the assistance you need.

They are available to meet with students who need research help in any subject area, whether in small groups or one-on-one.

It’s even easy to make an appointment online! Research assistance is available in-person and via email, phone, chat, and Teams or Zoom, while a variety of class instruction services are available upon faculty request.
