The library can be a confusing place. If you ever need help figuring out how to best use our many resources, feel free to contact our reference librarians by chat, text or email. You can also meet a librarian via Zoom by making an appointment. Our website also offers research guides for DIY help 24/7. Check our Getting Started on Research in the Library guide for tips!
The reference desk is the place to ask any questions about using the library and conducting research. We are currently virtual only, but don't hesitate to get in touch via Chat, Email ( firstname.lastname@example.org ), or Text ( 208-449-0841 )! The desk is staffed by professional librarians ready and eager to help you with your queries.
Students, faculty, and staff can schedule an appointment with a librarian for assistance in finding articles, books, websites, and other resources for research papers and projects, creating effective research strategies, and managing citations.
Faculty can also get help with integrating information resources into specific courses and designing effective library-based course assignments.
If you have questions, please contact Rochelle Smith, 208-885-7850 or email@example.com
Each U of I College has a librarian assigned as a subject liaison. Liaisons perform several functions, including teaching subject-specific classes, working with faculty to create research assignments, conducting one-on-one research sessions, and selecting and purchasing materials for the library.
