We have 3 quick tricks to help you along...
1. Just ask us for help.
Really, there are hundreds of people in the library who love to answer questions and solve problems. Walk up to any help desk and talk to the staff. We are mostly friendly.
If you don’t want to be seen asking for help we don’t mind. (We know it’s not personal.) You can IM, text, email, or call us. (You could even send us a FAX, but none of us like using that machine so include your phone number or email address for a faster response.)
2. Try our subject guides.
Hundreds, even thousands of students have taken most of the classes you take. Take our word for it, you are not the first person with a tough research paper topic or a tricky assignment in a field that is new to you. We’ve created special pages with subject specific information. It’s not cheating to use them. It’s just a smart way to study.
Click here to go to the list and then scroll through it until you see the subject of your class.
3. If it is late and the library is closed or you are at home studying on your bed and...
- a it’s too cold
- b it’s too hot
- c it’s too rainy
- d you are avoiding an old girlfriend/boyfriend so you don’t want to head up to campus
Then use our great new knowledgebase of answers to student questions.
There is a good chance someone has asked your question before and we’ve saved all the good answers for you to use.
Remember, we are happy to help you. In fact it is our job and, dare we say it, we are pretty good at it.
Thanks for visiting Research Rescue! We’re waiting to hear from you.
