How can I get help with research and citation skills?
New for Fall Term - Library Office Hours!
From 10 AM to 2 PM Monday to Friday, visit our online room to work with a librarian and answer any questions you have about research and citation. More information and link to the room here.
We have great tutorials and guides about research - these can help answer the initial questions you might have. All of our video tutorials are less than 6 minutes in length!
For example, if you need to learn how to use the library's catalogue to find an item, try watching our Conducting Research Using Library Resources
and How to Search Library Databases: Basics
video tutorials. Our Learn to Research guide
will also give you the basics on the research process.
A listing of all of our video tutorials can be found here
, and the related research guides can be found here
If you need to learn how to use APA citation style, or it has been a while since you have used it, consider taking our Intro to APA
Starting with an introduction to citation, this four-part course will guide you through how to create a reference list, write in-text citations, and teach you how to proofread and edit your document before you hand it in. All four parts will take approximately 1.5 to 2 hours to complete
– about 20-30 minutes per section. Start here with Part One!
If you just need to look up a few things or just want more in-depth information, use our APA Guide
to help you out.
For all other questions, either email email@example.com
to ask a librarian to contact you or use the live chat on the library's website during regular business hours.
