Our mission is to support the library's mission by facilitating access to information through direct personal service to library patrons, and by supporting the University's 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.
The Research Information Desk is located near the front door and is staffed by a professionally trained librarian many hours that the library is open. The librarians answer questions and offer direct personal assistance on using the Library's electronic and print sources to find information for research and study.
Reference Librarians are trained professionals who help library users find information needed for papers and other projects. Librarians can help you:
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.
Instructing classes, groups, and individuals in accessing and using research tools in order to develop life-long information seeking skills. Fill out our form, letting us schedule a time to meet your needs.
Providing access to materials and resources located outside the Library. Please fill out a form if you need materials.
