Services for Faculty

Research Help for Your Students

If your students are working on a research assignment, please have them visit the Librarians at the Reference Desk (main floor of the library, 2nd floor) to get help. Students may also set up a one-on-one appointment with a librarian in advance. 

The Appointment with a Librarian service allows you to reserve appointments with librarians for up to one hour of uninterrupted, personalized research assistance. If you want to meet with a librarian in-person or online, please email us at

Librarians can assist students with:

  • Developing a research strategy
  • How to use the research databases (EBSCOhost, etc.)
  • Locating sources such as books and articles
  • Citation help (MLA, APA, etc.)

We rely on your expertise to develop and maintain the collection in your subject areas and encourage recommendations for materials that will support your classroom assignments.
