Research, Instruction & Outreach

Your first stop for research assistance!

The research librarians and assistants are here to help you with your research and academic needs. We offer several services and tools to make your research experience successful.


NEW!! Roving Research Assistance. The research librarians can come to your school, department, residence hall, computer lab, or anywhere else you need us to be to answer research questions. All we need is a table and wireless access, and we bring a mobile device to help students find library resources for their research projects.You can schedule us to come to you at research-intensive times of the semester or set up recurring roving hours by using the Roving Research Assistance request.
