Librarians at AUNE Library can help you with any research question including:
- constructing searches in a particular database
- how to get from search results to full text
- framing, narrowing, or focusing your research inquiry
- suggesting where to begin your research
When contacting a librarian for research help, be sure to include the following information:
- Your name and program
- What class is it for?
- What exactly is the assignment?
- Is there a population or age group that is important?
- How large a project is it?
- When must the project be completed?
When contacting us via email, you must use your Antioch email account. Email from external email addresses (i.e., hotmail, yahoo, etc) is routinely deleted as a security precaution. Also, using Antioch email identifies you as an authorized user of library services.
Reference librarians can also give individual or group instruction on research in general, any specific database, or using citation management programs such as Zotero.
