Research Questions During Intersession

We don’t have Research Desk hours until j-term classes begin, but if the library is open, librarians are around! The go/askus page tells you how to find us. If you receive a research question, please don’t hesitate.

  • During regular hours, the easiest thing to do is to call x5496. That number rings in all librarian offices, and one of us should be available to help on the phone or in person. Try us even outside of regular hours! Often, at least a few of us are here even during the dinner hour.
  • You’re welcome to just walk over to our offices, too! Most of us are in the row of offices behind the Research Desk.
  • At any hour, you also can use to the go/askalibrarian form, which sends an email to all librarians.

Please encourage all researchers to drop by! It’s not interrupting. It’s our job!

Renewing thesis carrels

I just sent out an email informing thesis students that if they need their carrel in J-term or Spring, they need to come to the desk with a Banner printout indicating they are enrolled in a 5,6, or 700 level class for EITHER J-Term or Spring.

Students – please refer all thesis key renewals to a supervisor.

If they are only enrolled for J-term, change the due date on their key to 1/31.
If they are enrolled for only Spring, or both J-term and Spring, change due date to 5/21.

If they are not enrolled in either, please do not renew their key. It is due back on 12/17. If there are any available, they can check back in J-term.
