Reference Support: Home

There are many options for getting reference assistance.

What Can You Ask?

Almost anything!

Librarians can provide information and give advice on effective search strategy, search terms and using the resources and materials that we have in the library or online.

They can help locate relevant library-owned books and journals or will recommend the use of special services such as Interlibrary Loan.

Librarians are here to help you. If you are having problems finding the information you need, please contact us for assistance. We can provide more assistance to you in a timely fashion the earlier you ask for help.
