TOPIC: How do I get help with my research?
The Henderson Library provides a team of faculty and staff to select, purchase, and organize information resources for you. It is organized by multiple departments that work together to see that you have access to both services and resources to succeed. Below is a link that provides an overview of how the library is organized.
Getting help with research:
In addition to all the people working behind the scenes, we have librarians ready to assist you in finding what you need. Each librarian is a member of the Georgia Southern University faculty with expertise in suggesting sound literature search strategies and working with other library departments, troubleshooting problems that arise with accessing information resources. We provide service at the Info Desk many hours of the week. In addition, we are available for consultations by appointment. (See the information below to read more about Library Liaisons) You may contact us by phone, instant messaging, and by email.
Getting in touch with your library liaison:
A library liaison is a librarian who works directly with the faculty and students in one or more academic departments. They strive to focus on the resources and research trends in their liaison departments. If you have not contacted your library liaison, you are missing out on individualized, expert assistance with your research projects. Library liaisons conduct instructional session for classes throughout the academic year, but in addition to these sessions, you may work with your library liaison in person by appointment or through email, phone, or Skype.
