In-Person Reference/Research Consultations
The User Resources Librarian and the Director of Library Services are available to help you with research and using the library. In addition, these librarians offer individualized research consultations. These consultations can be the first step in planning your research and finding information on your topic for projects big and small. Research consultations are an excellent opportunity to get individualized help from a librarian in finding and using reference books, electronic databases, the library's online catalog, and other resources.
The library faculty provide course-based instruction. Any faculty member may request specialized instruction relevant to class projects. The library offers these course-based sessions in order to teach students about the information resources that are appropriate for an assignment in a specific class. In consultation with the faculty member, a librarian will design a presentation that meets the stated goals and objectives of the class. Reservations may be made through the director’s office (487-7110) or the office of the Reference Services Coordinator (487-7120).
