Librarian Help

Librarians are always available to help with your research and getting to know the campus. We're available in-person, phone, email or live chat.

Use Penfield's Ask a Librarian service to get librarian help 24/7.

Librarians are ready to answer all your questions. We frequently help with the questions listed below. However, we're never too busy for any of your questions, including the "silly" ones.

  • Where should I look for sources?
  • Could you help me brainstorm a research topic?
  • How can I broaden / narrow my topic?
  • How can I tell if a source is trustworthy?
  • I'm having trouble using a database or other library resource. Can you help?
  • How should I format this citation?
