Common things heard at the Ref Desk:

  • "I can't find anything on my topic"
  • "I need to find a peer-reviewed journal article" 
  • "I need to find a book on my topic'   
  • "my article won't open"                                                                                              

Things We Can Help with:

  • Refining a topic - collecting a working knowledge of your topic in order to expand or narrow
  • Search strategies - sometimes the hardest part of research is finding the right combination of key words, operators, & filters. 
  • Finding a book you can hold in your hands OR how to use one of the many ebooks
  • Troubleshooting - sometimes the databases don't play nice with each other. We can help you get what you need.
