Getting Research Help

 Library research in literature can sometimes be challenging. Be sure to ask for help if you aren't finding what you need.


For general information about locating and using library materials, you can always consult a staff member at the Research Help Desk.  Help is available on a walk-in basis most of the hours the library is open.  Or, you can ask questions by telephone, email, or chat
