Research Resources

Reference Librarians are available on a daily basis to provide assistance in the use of the library and its collections. Although they cannot do your research for you, they will be happy to help you get started on a research project and suggest the resources most appropriate for you. They will help you identify and find materials, whether books, journal articles, government publications or websites. They will also assist you in the use of electronic research databases as well as indexes, bibliographies and other publications in print.
