Online Learning Resources: Ask a Librarian

Subject Liaisons

Research and instruction resources and services are important to our University and our Library. We work with faculty to improve teaching and learning through information literacy instruction designed to help produce informed researchers at all levels both on our campuses and in our online classes. 

Research and instruction services are provided in person and remotely through telephone, email, or chat. Librarians also teach instruction sessions, give tours, and offer a number of workshops.  Subject liaisons are available to assist you with your research. If you have in depth questions or require more assistance please contact your Library Subject Liaison.
