Library Basics

You'll find several "getting started" guides here that cover some of the library basics.  Tips for formulating searches, differences between scholarly, trade, and popular publications, and differences between primary and secondary sources are just a few.  If at any point you need more assistance, please visit the Ask Us! page.  You can get help via IM, by phone, or by email without having to leave home; if you'd like to come in to the library, however, you can find us at the Research and Information Desk on the first floor of Jerome Library.
