Keep Calm Ask a Librarian

Need Help with Research? Ask!

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 resources for your topic
  • improve your search strategy
  • critically evaluate information, and
  • cite sources properly.

Librarians are available on weekdays and Sunday afternoons and may be reached by email (ask@dickinson.libanswers.com), text message (717-366-6623), or online chat. Individual librarians are also available by appointment.
