Often one receives a research assignment and one feels lost or confused or just unable to move forward and get the assignment done.
While college is time for one to discover his or her strengths (hopefully you pick your major based on what you do well at) you do not need to struggle alone when faced with difficulties.
Reference librarians are here to provide you research help. We can help you navigate the library’s website. We can help your pick databases to search. We can help you use the online catalog and find books. We can guide you when it comes to citing your sources. We can point you to other sources of information found here in the library and beyond.
When you have a librarian “in your back pocket” you are way ahead of the game when it comes to research and over all information acquisition and use. So remember whenever you are struggling with a research project or assignment and even when you are not, it doesn’t hurt to ask a librarian.
