Best Places to Get Research Help

One of the easiest and fastest ways to get research help is during a face-to-face visit with one of our librarians at the Reference Desk.  No appointment necessary.  We are located in the center of the first floor of the Axinn Library.

Another way to get answers to your questions is via our homepage. Just click on the large question mark and begin typing your question.  When librarians are on duty, you will get a quick response.  If it is after hours, you will get an answer the next morning.
