Tutor Guide: Start

Welcome!

We designed this guide for you - campus tutors! You'll find information that will help you connect students to the library, research materials, and librarians. We invite you to use this guide whenever research questions arise during a tutorial. The tabs at the top of the page will help you locate information about citations, searching for books and articles, tracking down hard copies of materials, and identifying reliable sources.  

Three of our most useful online resources are below; we encourage you to share this information with any students you are tutoring:

  • Research Guides: Here, you can find resources broken down by subject, discipline, and even by course.  You can also locate the Research Guides by clicking on “Research Guides” on the left side of the library homepage.
  • Quick Answers: For library FAQs and answers about anything from how to use the scanner to where the reference books are located, the Quick Answers page is full of helpful information.
  • Doing Research: This guide on the research process offers an overview of how to do research well, including tips on searching and accessing information.

Contact a Librarian

Whenever you or someone you're helping has a research questions & you're not sure how to proceed, don't hesitate to get in contact with a librarian! We're here to help. Answering research questions is why we're here. 

There are many ways to connect with a librarian. Our Ask Us page has links to an online appointment form, as well as information about reference desk hours for drop-in appointments. Otherwise you can simply email any of the librarians - pick any of the people who have a red profile box.

While we do work with specific areas, we tend to consult with each other about questions, so don't worry about finding the "right" librarian for your question.
