The Library offers free, hands-on classes covering database searching and the Internet, which are held in the Carruth Room (Rm. 233 on the second floor in the library unless otherwise indicated).
Librarians use their expertise to select the right database and generate a list of references and abstracts (when available) tailored to your specific interests. If the topic is one of ongoing interest, the search can be set up as an alert so that regular updates are sent automatically.
Although 24 hours is the departmental standard for finishing searches, most searches are started immediately and sent as soon as completed. Actual times may vary depending on time of receipt, staff availability, system availability and the complexity of the search(es).
