Getting Help

Librarians are here for you.

These are a few of the ways we can help. We encourage you to get in touch!

  • Research Guides: These Guides have been created by librarians to introduce you to various resources and services for research. On the Preus Library website, click on the Guides tab in the middle above the search box. You can browse Guides by subject or course, and search all Guides.
  • Research Help Desk: Located on the main floor of the library next to Tech Help, this desk is staffed by a librarian from 12:30-4:30 and 7-9:30 every Sunday through Friday (no evening hours on Fridays, though)
