Get Help Early and Get Off to a Good Start This Semester

There are many library services that can save you time and make life a lot easier for you. Get off to a good start this semester by making use of these and other services:

• When you’re off campus, use Ask-a-Librarian -- email, IM, or telephone us for assistance with using databases, formatting a citation, choosing a research topic or any other questions.

• Request items this library does not own by using Interlibrary Loan – simply fill out the ILLiad form with the item information and then we will search libraries all over the world to obtain it.

• Take one of the Dewey Workshops! This can provide you an overview of the services and resources that will help you get started. You shouldn’t have to learn how to use the library while you are doing research. Learn the library ahead of time and when it’s time to write that paper, you can quickly get started on finding what you need.

• Make an appointment with a bibliographer. Subject specialist librarians are available by appointment, email and telephone to help with your discipline-specific questions. Bibliographers have in-depth knowledge of the resources related to your field. They can help refine paper topics, choose keywords for the most effective database searches, and work with you to find the articles and books you need for your paper.

Take the time to look at the services section of our website today – there may be other things with which we can help!
