 Research Help Desk

Research Help Desk

Students can talk to Librarians and trained students at the Research Help Desk (RHD). Research Help Desk Assistants can help with choosing a database, narrowing search terms, finding journal articles, putting in InterLibrary Loan requests, and creating citations. 

If you would like to include a visit to the RHD in an assignment, please email in advance with the assignment details. 


Our instruction program teaches students that research is a recursive process that includes searching strategically, wisely evaluating, and ethically integrating sources in various contexts. There are a variety of ways you can partner with Librarians for instruction. 

What can Library Instruction look like?

  • In-class research demo by your Liaison Librarian
  • Librarian gives overview of research steps tailored to your discipline or assignment
  • One-on-one research consultations for students with a Librarian (requires advance coordination and is based on Librarian availability)
  • Workshop for integrating sources (quotations, paraphrase)
