Meet Your Librarians

For students working on their IQP either on campus or off campus, the library is here to help! You can schedule a research consultation or stop by our offices on the main floor of the library. Our office hours are Monday - Friday, 8am - 5pm.

Each ID2050 class is assigned a librarian to help students in that class conduct their research. As a team, please reach out to your assigned librarian to schedule a research consultation. The librarians are here to help you with all stages of the research process, including helping you determine what questions to ask, where to find sources, and how to cite sources. If you have any questions for the librarians once you're abroad, send us an email or a chat. We love hearing from you!
