Welcome to your Library Research guide. The intent of this guide if to help you locate appropriate library resources for your research assignment. Use the tabs along the side of the page to navigate through the guide.
You may want to start your research by using OneSearch which will enable you to search across many of our databases in a single search.
Or you may want to search for information by type. In that case, use the tabs to locate reference sources, books, articles, and websites. If you need additional help, you can contact me directly (see the box on the left). Or check out the box below for other options for getting help with your library research.
Please check out our Library FAQs for information about library access and services this fall semester.
Please note that research assistance will be available from anywhere live via Chat and Zoom 60+ hours a week, Monday-Sunday. You may chat with a librarian through the pop-out link on the library home page: https://www.hofstra.edu/library/. Through chat, librarians can share your screen and guide you through searches of relevant library resources, assist you with citing your sources, recommend online databases, etc. Walk-up reference services will not be available. HOWEVER, if you are in the Axinn Library - or anywhere else in the world - you may chat live with a librarian by visiting the library home page and clicking on the LIVE CHAT button on the right side of the page.
You can also make a research appointment by visiting https://libcal.hofstra.edu/appointments/. Appointments are one-on-one and enable you to have a conversation about your research and clarify your information needs.
If the reference desk is closed, you may text or email your reference questions to our reference librarians 24/7 by visiting: https://libanswers.hofstra.edu/. We will respond to your inquiries ASAP when the reference desk hours resume.
