Zoom drop-in help

Zoom Icon
 
As midterm papers are being due and final projects loom closer, the Library is expanding its virtual reference assistance. Now, in addition to chat and email (both available 7 days a week, with the exception of holidays) students are welcome to consult with librarians live on Zoom.
 
The Zoom drop-ins are equivalent to our face-to-face reference service that provides assistance with forming a research topic and search strategy, finding and accessing sources, and solving any research-related problems.
 
Some of the queries librarians address include the following:
 
*How do I get started with my project?
*What are the keywords I need to get good articles?
*Where should I go to find sources for my paper?
 
Checking in with a librarian, as students often observe, makes research more doable and saves lots of time and frustration. In the remote environment, getting library assistance via Zoom additionally provides guidance in doing research in a context where print sources are not available. 
 
We are looking forward to seeing you on Zoom.
