The Library offers free classes covering database searching and other library resources. Face-to-face classes are held in the Carruth Room (room 2.233 on the second floor in the library), unless otherwise indicated. Online classes are conducted using Microsoft Lync (a meeting invitation will be sent after your registration is received).
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).
Expert search assistance is also available for those wishing to do their own searches. Reference Librarians will:
|Julie Trumble - 409-772-3642||Tara Atkins - 409-772-6312|
|Janet Burk - 409-772-2386||Anne Howard - 409-772-2446|
Testing Centers are available for computerized or print examinations, as well as large group instruction.
