Research Help Desk Services

The Research Help Desk is located on the Main Floor of Preus Library, adjacent to the Technology Help Desk and near the Writing Help Desk. The staff working at these desks will work together to help you with questions related to research.

The librarians who work at the Research Help Desk staff specialize in questions related to developing search strategies, using Encore/Magnus and library databases, finding research materials, choosing appropriate materials, and evaluating sources.

There will be someone at the Research Help Desk during the following times:

  • Monday-Friday: 11:00 a.m.-4:30 p.m.
  • Sunday-Thursday: 7:00 p.m.-9:30 p.m.
  • Sunday: 12:00 noon-4:30 p.m.

You may also use the Research Help Chat service (available below, within topic guides, or on the Library homepage) or contact your section's librarian directly (see the librarian's profile in your section topic guide).

Tip!

Don't be afraid to ask any question related to research! The librarians who work at the Research Help Desk will work to get your question answered no matter what it is.
