Research Help on Saturdays This Fall

The library has reference librarians available during regular business hours and several evenings a week. This fall, we will also provide reference services on Saturdays from Jon Amey, our reference intern. Jon is in his final semester of his master's of library science at Simmons College here in Boston.

What is reference? It's library service to help you with your research. Our student workers at the main service desk can help you with the basics, things like getting reserve materials or finding a score for a particular song. But reference librarians can help you with the more more complex or vague stuff, especially when you need help finding something about a topic rather than knowing exactly what you're looking for. We can also save you time because we're trained in sources and techniques to pinpoint relevant information; it's the difference between finding everything and finding the right thing.

Stop by the reference desk in the reading room for help or just to say hi.
