Reference

When you need research help, reference librarians are ready to assist you with everything from beginning strategies to complex projects. Librarians can help you select a database or other search tool, or find books, journal articles, news and newspaper sources, government documents, statistics, data and any other information you might need for your research. We can get you going or help you move forward with your research or put that perfect source in your hands or your inbox.
