Librarians do not conduct research for students but will encourage and help them begin their own research, write their own papers, and create their own bibliographies. Professional staff may suggest that students contact the Writing & Learning Center, the Online Writing Center, or the writing support Librarians serve as your contact for research in various academic disciplines and welcome queries and requests for a reference consultation or a quick visit to the Reference Desk. Librarians also assist faculty determine which resources best support their information need and work with faculty in developing appropriate information literacy and co-curricular support services and resources.
