Upcoming Event: Ask-A-Librarian Research Help Pop-Up
Need help with that research paper? Have questions about citations? Hope to build your research skills?
The BU Libraries, in partnership with the Educational Resource Center, are hosting a research help pop-up for students to ask questions about the research process, learn about resources and tools, and to troubleshoot issues as they work on final papers. Librarians will be stationed in the reception area of the Educational Resource Center on the 5th floor of Yawkey Center for Student Services at 100 Bay State Road on Tuesday, December 5, through Thursday, December 7, from 4 to 6 p.m. for this Ask-A-Librarian Research Help Pop-Up.
Students are encouraged to stop by to ask questions about the research process, learn about resources and tools available to them, or to troubleshoot issues as they work on final papers. Some examples of topics our librarians can help with include: finding scholarly sources, properly citing sources, developing a search strategy using copyright-free media, and downloading financial and economic data.
Librarians provide research help year-round in libraries and online. Anyone unable to visit the pop-up can also get help at BU Libraries locations or visit askalibrarian.bu.edu to call, chat, text, email, or set up an appointment with a librarian.
