Our librarians are research experts who will help you find and use information on any topic. We aim to be your guides in this process and our goal is to empower you to do research for yourself, whether it is for a class project or personal interest.

Research appointments are available in person or over Google Meet. They must be scheduled at least 24 hours in advance.
