The Library Learning Commons / Reference Center

Library Learning Commons

The Library Learning Commons, located at the west end of the first floor, is the Library's primary service point for assistance and information. The Reference Staff at the Reference Center assists with research questions. They can help you locate books, articles, and any other kind of information using the library catalog, databases, and internet. The IS&T student at the desk will help you with technology and software problems. The Reference Staff can also help you find the answer to general informational questions. Reference librarians are also available in their offices in RT 110.
