How Can a Librarian Help?

Librarians are available to help with every step of the research process. We are information professionals and love working with students to connect you with the information you need. We can help you:

* choose a research topic or find a research question

* broaden or narrow your topic

* find sources, whether they are books, articles, maps, music, data, etc. We can help you do great searches using Libraries tools and search engines like Google. 

* evaluate sources. Is it credible? Is it peer-reviewed? etc.

* recommend tools for organizing your research and citations..
