Make an appointment for a personal research consultation.  We are happy and excited to help you find high quality resources that best support your work.  Librarians can save you time and effort as you delve into your papers or research.

Librarians are assigned as liaisons to one or two divisions to foster stronger working relationships and help improve communication and contact between faculty and librarians. As liaison to the division, librarians are responsible for instruction for that division and they notify faculty about resources and opportunities for their division including collection development opportunities, etc.
