If you have any questions about the research process, please don't hesitate to ask a librarian for assistance. You can reach a reference librarian at 656-2022 or by email. If you are in the Library, ask for assistance at the Reference Desk. The librarians are here to help you with your research and to answer any questions that you may have regarding our resources and how to use them.
