Research support

Getting started with your research may seem overwhelming at first because LITS has so much stuff available. You’re in luck, because we have people and tools to help you.

Get help from a person:

Do-it-yourself with tools and tutorials designed to point you in the right direction:

The Research Help Desk, located on Level 2 of the library just off the atrium and across from the Circulation Desk, is staffed by student assistants, with research librarians backing them up from 9 – 5 M – F when classes are in session. Drop by for help finding books and articles, talking through a topic for a paper or project, with citations and bibliographies and a whole lot more! Don’t have time to drop by? Drop us a line at or chat with us online.

Check out our online tutorials at any time to learn how to use the library.

While all of us can get you started with almost any question you have, you can also contact a subject specialist (LITS liaison) for help directly.
