Library Lab

A library lab is research consultation, an opportunity for a student or a small group of students to meet with a librarian and discuss an academic research project. Soon after you submit a lab request, a librarian will contact you to set up a day and time to meet. During this meeting, the librarian will teach you useful research skills and strategies, such as how to identify and use relevant print and electronic resources. Whenever you have a challenging research question or problem, that’s the time to request a library lab.

Missing Book Search Request

Can't find a book on the shelf in the library? You can always ask at the circulation desk or the reference desk, but you can also fill out this form to request that library staff search for the missing book for you. When the book is found, someone from the library will e-mail you to let you know.
