As always, the Research Librarians are ready to help you get started on projects and papers. Reference books now circulate for three days. You can stop by the Research Help Desk, chat online or make individual appointments.Check out the Ask a Librarian page for more information.

We have made several changes to the first and second floors.Look for computers, printers and MFPs in new convenient locations.

Whether a poster, video or a memorable presentation, help with technology-based projects is available in the TechLab on the 2nd floor. Computers in the TechLab have been updated to include Office 2010. New laptops and iPads are available for checkout for three hours at the 2nd floor Media Services desk.
