Research Assistance

Library staff is available during all scheduled library hours to answer your reference questions, help you find books and articles, and check out and renew your items. Come in or call us with your questions and we will help you use the online library catalog and online databases. We will arrange for interlibrary loans of items from other college libraries as well as intercampus loans of items from our own campus libraries. Ask us for subject and research guides that will help you with your assignments. Computers and printers are available at all campus libraries. You can also use [email protected] to “Ask Your Librarian” a question via email.

Following are some websites where you can post reviews of books you have read and check to see what others have read and reviewed.
