Meet Your Librarians

Did you know there are reference librarians in the library who can help you locate the information and resources you need, assist with your research project, help with citing your paper, and much more.

In-person assistance is available at the reference desk in the library on the 4th floor, Monday through Thursday from 12-2pm. No appointment necessary — just drop by when you need assistance.

One-on-one research consultations are also available through the library. You are encouraged to make an appointment with your subject librarians.
