Research Assistance

We’re here to help you!

There is a reference librarian on duty between 7:30 a.m. and 6:00 p.m. Monday through Thursday, and between 7:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. on Fridays.

Drop by for help, or make an appointment by calling 326-2263 or emailing. Feel free to email or call for assistance if your schedule doesn’t permit you to visit in person. You can also chat with or text a reference librarian during the hours listed above.

Our primary job is to help you be successful as you study, learn, and pursue a degree at the academy. Some of the ways we do this are to:

  • teach search strategies that help you more effectively access information
  • provide suggestions/advice to refine the scope of your research
  • assist you in locating resources in and outside of the library

In addition to contacting a librarian for assistance, you can also refer to our research guides, which provide information on conducting research in a variety of topics and courses.
