What we do

The research help desk helps you find information for your research assignments. We will help you articulate your research question, identify the best sources, and formulate your search strategy. We offer these services for students, faculty, and the community. We don't set up your computer or do your research and assignments for you.

When you don't know where to start, or you can't think of what to do next, we can help.

Our librarians also:

  • answer simple factual questions
  • provide research consultations for more involved questions
  • are available for subject librarian appointments (researchers with very specific or distinct areas of interest may benefit)
  • Answer your questions about library policies, procedures and services.
