Research

Reference librarians are available during business hours to answer question, provide instruction, and assist with performing research.  A librarian can be located at the Help Desk in the center of the library. 

Our library is a "Ready Reference" library which means we can assist with shorter questions, generally lasting up to 15 minutes.  If you have extensive research, librarians will be glad to provide instruction.  A librarian may be able to perform extensive research, if scheduling permits, under our Fee-based Research Policy.

If you need assistance and are not in the library, please contact a librarian thorough one of the following methods:
