Drop-in Research Help
Want to know how to locate a book or article, choose keywords, or narrow your topic? Holland/Terrell Libraries has drop-in research help Monday-Thursday from 9-6 and Friday from 9-5. Student assistants are available during these times, and librarians are available 12-4. No appointment is needed! The desk is located through the glass doors across from the library entrance.
Arrange a 30-minute session with a librarian to get help with your project or paper. The appointment could include: developing a topic and keywords, searching for scholarly and popular sources, and building citations. Click on the "Book-A-Librarian" link below to schedule a time. Appointments may be held either in person or virtually, depending on your preference.
Librarians have created research guides in a variety of subject areas. These guides include research tips, suggested databases and books, the contact information of librarian experts in these areas, and more. Find them here: Research Guides
