research help desk

Need help? Stop by the Research Help Desk on the first floor of Fleet Library, or contact one of our Research & Instruction Librarians who will happily respond to email questions or meet with you to discuss your research.

An Art Librarian can:

  • Listen as you discuss your class assignment, studio projects, and research needs
  • Translate your art & design ideas into effective ways to think about, search for, and locate information
  • Bridge any gaps between your subject domain and the library domain
  • Offer ways to think critically about the information you encounter
