Getting Help & Assistance

I am available for consultations on using library resources and finding research and data.  Just use my online scheduler to make an appointment.  You can also send me quick questions by email. 

If you have a quick question about using the library, finding a specific book or article, etc., it will be faster to stop by the Research/IT Desk or use the 24/7 library chat service and get help from the librarian on duty.

General Research Resources

Here are some shortcuts to important library resources.

When the Library Doesn't Have What You Want

When you need to read an article, working paper, or book but you can't find it in the Libe's collections, you have more options than pulling out your wallet. The Inter-Library Loan (ILL) service makes it possible for the library to borrow materials from other libraries for you to use.

Look for links to ILL or Illiad (which is the name of our ILL software) from article databases, which will lead you to a request form. You can also go directly to Interlibrary Loan from the library web site, where you can also check the status of your requests. Articles take a few days and books around a week. You'll get an email when your item is ready.
