Get Your Research Help Here

Wednesday, February 22, 2012 1:34 pm

Now that we are a month into the semester, some of the deadlines on your syllabus that once seemed so far away are becoming more real! Before you panic, remember that the librarians of ZSR are here to help.

  • We have reference librarians who cover each of the subject areas on campus, so no matter if your project is a company report, a literature review, a case study or a historical research project, we have someone who can help you get started.
  • Make an appointment for a personal research session and we will walk with you through your assignment and topic, and help you find the books, articles and online resources that you will need.
  • We have multiple ways for you to contact us, for either quick questions or more extensive research needs: Ask a Librarian.

If you would like a more in-depth introduction to library research, consider taking LIB100. This half-semester, one-credit course will give you an overview of how to do academic research and take advantage of the resources we have at ZSR. There are spaces available in the sections that start after Spring Break. Take a look at the LIB100 schedule.
