Ask a Librarian

Midterm Season is Here. Librarians Can Help.

Exams, essays, homework assignments—it is that time of the year. Before your stress reaches an alarmingly high level, speak with a liaison librarian. Librarians are professionals who help library users find information and critically evaluate it, develop a research topic, and cite your sources properly.

There is a librarian available Monday through Friday, as well as on Sundays. Look for the familiar red flag or stop at the Circulation Desk and ask to see a librarian. You may also schedule an individual appointment with a liaison librarian.
