Library Offering Research Help

At Memorial Library, nine research librarians are ready and waiting to help students and others looking for research assistance.

Library staff encourage the College community to get off to a good start with their research by visiting the Research Help desk. 

Librarians are available to assist at every stage of the research process, including locating books in the catalog and improving search results in the databases.  

Research Help services are available from 10 a.m. to 9:30 p.m. Monday through Wednesday, 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Thursday, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Friday, and during the afternoons on weekends. 

Faculty and students may also make one-on-one research appointments with their subject specialist, or liaison. On MyRedDragon, students and faculty can view their liaison’s photo and contact information in the lower-right corner of the library tab. Business cards also are available at Research Help.

Previously called Reference, Research Help has recently relocated to the left side of the The Help Center in the lobby of the library. 

The new location will be assessed in October, so those who use the service are encouraged to share their suggestions. To give feedback, call the desk at 607-753-2590, stop by in person, or complete the online feedback form at
