How a Librarian is the Key to Your Research Success

A librarian can help you:

  • Understand what kind of information you need for your research assignment
  • Decide the best places to look to find what you need
  • Broaden or narrow your topic to make it manageable within the scope of the assignment and time you have to do it
  • Formulate a question about your topic and find search terms that work
  • Use library databases to find articles from scholarly journals, magazines, newspapers, and reference books
  • Use the library catalog to find books
  • Request items from other libraries
  • Find the answer to any question, using credible and reputable sources of information.
