This is intended to be a starting point. If you feel you need more help, please don't hesitate to contact me for one-on-one help.

Research and Citation Help

For in-depth help with your paper, we offer individualized Research and Citation Consultations. These one-hour, one-on-one consultations are aimed at either locating resources for your topic or formatting your bibliography and in-text citations. Consultations are by appointment only. To make an appointment, complete this form.

The librarians have also created Library Guides to help you locate information on your topic.

InterLibrary Loan

At some point you will run into an item you need but we don't have.  To solve this problem we have InterLibrary Loan.  This service will allow you borrow the article from another library and have it emailed to you.  All you have to do is start the request and provide as much information as you can.
