At a Dead End with Research? We’re Here to Help!

Just a reminder to anyone having a terrible Tuesday with seemingly endless assignments looming: you can schedule a one-on-one research consultation with a librarian! Sign up online or stop by the research desk in order to get some guidance on navigating the research databases. There are also subject-specific librarian liaisons that can assist you in whatever course requires a research-based report.

Spring Semester 2019

Hello, Flyers!

We hope you are having an amazing Spring Semester so far!  We have a lot of awesome things planned for you this semester.  Check our social media often for updates, and keep your eyes peeled on campus for flyers advertising library programs.

We wanted to let you know that we will be closed this Monday in observance of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.  You might recognize this painting of him hanging in the library!

And next week we have an event that we hope you will all attend, as well:

We hope to see you then, Flyers!
