Library Help Desk

The Library Help Desk is located on the ground floor of the library. In addition to support with technology and computing needs, the Library Help Desk is your first point of contact when getting started with your research, finding materials on the shelves, and using library materials.

Research questions are referred to librarians who can connect you with the most appropriate resources as quickly and as painlessly as possible.

Alternatively, email your research question or schedule a time to meet with a librarian in person.
