Here's How We Can Help
Research Services for the Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences
Consultation Desk 2nd Floor Peter J. Shields Library 11am-5pm Mon-Fri.
Librarians, trained in the social sciences, humanities, and government information, are available at this location to help with class assignments, term papers and advanced research projects. Drop by, no appointment needed.
Research Appointments and Librarian Office Hours:
We are available to help with research projects. We can meet with individuals or with groups for consultations to help make the best use of library resources. We can schedule anything from one-time meetings to sustained research alliances spanning the duration of the project. Tell us what you are working on, so we can make sure the library is serving your needs. Contact a Librarian Subject Specialist to make an appointment.
New Acquisitions and Book Requests:
The Library works hard to provide the latest information to support the University's research and instruction. We are interested in hearing about advances and new directions in your fields of study. If you would like the Library to purchase an item important for research or instruction, please contact your Subject Specialist.
Library Research Classes, Orientations, and Tours:
We offer classes and tours throughout the year geared to introduce students to library research. These classes are taught on a regular schedule and may also be offered on request. We can develop a session to meet the specific needs of a class or group. Contact your Subject Specialist to find out how we can help jump-start your students’ research projects. We offer these classes in the library or in your classroom.
