Reference Services

Reference librarians are available to help all students with research questions and projects. Reference librarians can help you locate an individual source or provide research assistance for in-depth research projects. We're available for drop-in questions and longer research consultations by appointment. If you spend more than 15 minutes looking for something, ask a reference librarian!

    Friday 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.
