  • Citation verification assistance - We can help you figure out those pesky citations and proof your references.
  • Interlibrary loan -The library can obtain books and journal articles for you that are not in the library collection. While most services are free, there is a $5 fee for all books ordered and a $10 fee for items obtained from libraries that charge the library. 
  • Web searching assistance - Lots of good and bad information can be found on the Internet. We can help you choose reliable web sites, refine your searches and evaluate your findings.
