Library Orientation for International Students: Finding Resources

Library Resources

When you have an assignment, project or a paper for a class, the Library's search engine is a good place to start to find resources. After that, you can use the Interlibrary Loan Services to request a material you need that we do not have. And remember, if you have a question, contact your librarian. You can also make a Research Consultation.
