The Libraries are here to help! Here are a few resources available to you for your research and information needs:
1. Peer Research Consultants - Peer Research Consultants staff the Research Desk in Roy O. West Library. They go through extensive training to learn how to best help other students with their own library research questions. When they feel like a librarian can best help someone, they'll recommend that the student make an appointment with a librarian. The Research Desk schedule is available online.
2. Appointment with a Librarian - Need more in-depth help on a big research project? Schedule an appointment ahead of time to work with a librarian!
