In addition to providing access to research materials, the University Libraries provide consultation services, research help, and workshops. Make an individual appointment with (or email) your subject librarian to learn about the tools and resources you need to successfully conduct academic library research in your discipline. Subject librarians have expertise in a field and are here to help you with everything from literature reviews to identifying data sets to using scholar productivity tools like Zotero. The Library also has a Research Data Services (RDS) that provides a wide variety of services in support of effective research data planning, management, preservation, discovery and use. The Library also offers workshops on a variety of research topics (often in conjunction with the Graduate Resource Center) - see the Library’s website and/or the GRC website for event listings and provides a walk-up Help Desk in each of its branches.
