Research & Reference Desk

For walk-in questions about research or about the library, a librarian is often available to assist you at the Research and Reference Desk. No appointment is needed. If a librarian is on-call, a library student assistant at the Front Desk will page a librarian to assist you with your research. You are also encouraged to contact a librarian for a particular subject area. Find a subject librarian.
