Librarians are experts in suggesting where to search, identifying appropriate keywords, and navigating search results. In short, we can help you complete research assignments. This video from Northeastern Illinois University explains it well: Who are librarians and what do they do?

Come see us at the desk in the library. During the semester, we are at the desk Monday–Wednesday 9:30am–7pm, Thursday 9:30–4:30, and Friday 9:30–2. Weekday mornings we are usually available before 9:30; ask the staff member at the desk to see a librarian.
