Reference:  We will help you find what you are looking for in-person at our reference desk, by chat, phone or e-mail.  See the Reference Books tab for a list of our recent book purchases (located in the library or online).  

Our librarians have recommended useful Web resources.  See them by going to the E-Reference tab.

Research: We will help you at the reference desk - or you can set up a research appointment with a subject librarian.

Instruction:  We will work with you to tailor instruction to the needs of your class. If your class has an Essential Studies Information Literacy component we will work with you to design a class that addresses the rubric.  We'll come to your classroom (on campus or online) or you can bring your class to our instruction room.  See the Instruction tab above for more details.
