Research begins not in the laboratory but in the library

How Can We Help?

Research Support.Trouble finding sources or full text? Do you have a complex search topic? We offer search support and assistance including advanced literature search services.  Contact Gwen or stop by the library.

Writing Support. Struggling with your latest writing project? Need a second set of eyes on your paper? Schedule a writing consultation with Laura. During the one hour (or less) appointment, the consultant will review your work with you, offer suggestions for improvement, and help you “talk out” ideas for writing.

Workshops, seminars and group instruction. We regularly offer instruction sessions on topics such as advanced database searching, improving writing skills, and managing citations. See below for upcoming events.
