When to Seek Reference Help
Patrons are encouraged to contact a librarian anytime they:

  2. Need help establishing the scope of a topic (narrowing down a topic), or
  3. Need instruction on using a particular resource, whether in paper or electronic form, or
  4. Need help evaluating the resource to determine if it is acceptable for scholarly research
