Research Assistance

Library users may schedule individual appointments to consult the Librarian at the start of their research. The Librarian can provide advice on the range of resources available in a specific subject area and help in locating materials on any given topic. This can be done in person, via the phone or email. The Librarian also assists students with the APA citation style of referencing. In addition, the Library has citation management software (Endnote and MS Word) that can create references and bibliographies and the Librarian offers EndNote training workshops. Web-based guides  cover areas ranging from the different citation styles, listings of newly acquired journals and books in a particular subject area, to how to search online journal databases, etc. These guides can save the researcher's time.
