Liaison Librarians: each academic discipline works with a librarian as a partner in providing research support, instructing students, and collecting materials.
Research Guides: Librarians curate online resources that provide useful suggestions for search tools and sources by research area.
Online Tutorials: Librarians create learning materials on a variety of topics including the steps in the research process and tips on using specific research tools.
Student Support Services
To a new student, it is not always obvious who or where to go to for help. Your librarian does not have the expertise or training to support all of a student's needs, such as IT and computer support, tutoring, or writing help. However, your librarian can help you connect with the right person, department, or unit within the library or across campus to best assist you.
