Reference Service

Reference Librarians are trained professionals who help library users find information needed for papers and other projects. Librarians can help you:

  • find information (books, articles, and more)
  • choose the most relevant databases for your topic
  • improve your research strategy
  • critically evaluate information, and
  • cite sources properly.
