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:
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.
