COVID-19 Update: Although access to Gould Library remains closed, library staff will continue our commitment to support the teaching and research needs of the Carleton community during the COVID-19 pandemic. Due to the Governor’s stay at home order, the library has moved to a virtual services model from March 28 through April 10, 2020. Our extensive collection of digital materials remains available, and the majority of library services are accessible remotely. Information on library resources and services will be updated regularly on the Spring 2020: Remote Resources and Guidance for Library Users page. Please do not hesitate to contact us if you need assistance accessing resources and services.
When we meet to chat about your research, we might discuss the following or answer the questions below:

Refining your topic - perhaps it's too broad or too narrow
How do I find books, articles, studies, etc. on my topic?
How do I find specific books, articles, etc.?
