The Reference Desk is located on the second floor of the library.
Reference service is provided in person at the reference desk, by phone, through email, chat and texting.
At the Reference Desk, students may seek help with class assignments or research paper or project.
We also provide one-on-one instruction on how to use our many library resources in both electronic and print formats.
Library Online Catalogs:

Use Journal Finder to check if a journal, magazine or newspaper you are seeking is available online or on the shelves in the library. To access Journal Finder, go to our library web page, click on "Journal Finder" tab from the search box or click on the "Journal Finder" link listed under the 'Search' category.
To access the library's many databases, go to the library's web page. Click on 'Databases A-Z' or 'Databases by subject' link under the search box. You may also access these links by placing your cursor over the 'Databases' link listed under search category.
The information environment has become exceedingly complex as information-seekers navigate through a maze of online resources such as web sites and the library's databases. It is the library's responsibility to serve as a bridge between the information source and the information seeker.
With this in mind, Library Instruction is available upon request. These library instruction sessions are designed to meet the specific needs of faculty and their students. For example, we have conducted library sessions to help students with a specific assignment, or to introduce students to basic search techniques.
Faculty are encouraged to schedule a library instruction session by contacting the Reference Desk at 674-6352 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. We suggest that at least a week's notice is given when scheduling a class so we can better prepare for the session. Click here to submit an online Library Instruction Request Form
