If you get an email, take action – talk to your professor, advisor, or someone in the Center for Student Success to make sure you’re on a path to success.

Whether it be a quick question about finding that last elusive source for a paper, scheduling a longer consultation to go over their projects in greater depth or learn the fundamentals of researching, or anything in-between, the reference librarians are there to make students’ lives a little easier. Students also have access to Ohiolink, a statewide library system that greatly expands the amount of materials students can obtain at no cost.
