Reference librarians are available to help your students most any time they need it, no appointment necessary. As we head toward the end of the semester, many students are hard at work on research papers and projects and may need help in a hurry. Please remind your students that they can drop in and get assistance with starting research, finding sources, managing citations, and more.
Reference librarians are available at the Information Desk in the library Monday-Thursday 9 a.m.-10 p.m., Friday 9 a.m.-5 p.m., Saturday 11 a.m.-5 p.m. and Sunday 1 p.m.-9 p.m. Reference librarians can also be contacted online during these hours to answer research questions through the Ask a Librarian service--just look for the link at the top right on the library homepage.
