Welcome to your online guide for library research!  This guide provides an overview of library resources and services that are available to you, for this class and beyond.  Navigation is through the tabs on the left.

The Library offers many materials and services to help with your research, and librarians are here to help you along with the process.

And as always, if you have questions about how to find books or articles, or how to go about doing research, please feel free to contact me.  I am happy to help you!  You can also get research help from other librarians.  Below you will find access to the Student Learning Center and all their incredible services, various ways to get research help from the library, library floor plans, and instructions for printing in the library from a campus computer and your device.
