Midterms are approaching and Memorial Library’s Research Help is equipped with many resources to assist students through one of the most academically challenging times of the year.
Located adjacent to the Help Center, Research Help offers services such as locating library materials, analyzing database search results and providing students, faculty and staff with one-on-one research sessions. Patrons may simply stop by the desk or make an appointment on MyRedDragon’s library tab in order to work with a librarian.
The library employs 11 research librarians specializing in various disciplines, all of whom are dedicated to saving students’ time and improving their research skills. These librarians are trained in helping students narrow their research topics, develop effective search strategies, cite sources and evaluate search results.
Research Help is available from 10 a.m. to 9:30 p.m. Monday through Wednesday, 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Thursday, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Friday, noon to 5 p.m. on Saturday and 1 to 9 p.m. on Sunday. Additionally, a librarian is available 24/7 via an online chat on MyRedDragon.
