About Research & Instruction Services

The Reference Department provides several types of services to the University Community. Services are provided at the reference desk, by phone, email and chat. Reference faculty also teach library instruction sessions, give tours, and provide numerous workshops. Each Reference faculty member is also a subject bibliograper and selects the materials to be purchased in one or more disciplines.
