Research Librarians on duty

We’re available for questions at the Research Desk! Winter Term hours begin today. (Evening coverage begins next week.)

How to cite a web site in a bibliography? How to find more (or fewer!) scholarly articles? Where to look for statistics? We can help!

Refer research questions to the Research Desk, or to librarians in the offices behind the research desk. Contact info and hours below and at http://go.middlebury.edu/askus.

Research Desk for spring

We’re back to our regular hours at the Research Desk as of today. Regular hours are:

  • Sunday: 1-5 and 7-10
  • Monday – Wednesday: 11-5 and 7-10
  • Thursday: 11-5
  • Friday: 11-4

Please send any research questions over to us! We’re happy to help. If you don’t see someone at the desk, simply call x5496 or write to us at http://go.middlebury.edu/askalibrarian. Or, walk over to our offices behind the desk!

In the fall, there were a few questions about when a research librarian would be available. Our hours are posted on the research assistance page at http://go.middlebury.edu/askus, but you also may write to us using the askalibrarian form. That’s the best way to reach all of us during off-hours; it sends an email to all librarians.

Let me know if you have any questions!

Research Desk during intersession

You won’t see librarians at the Research Desk again until Monday, September 8, 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 to refer it to us.

  • 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!

Research Desk this Friday (Spring Symposium)

In order to allow librarians to attend the Spring Symposium this Friday April 19, we have reduced our Research Desk hours. We recognize that some students will be doing coursework in addition to attending presentations throughout the day.  So, students can find us in person at the Research Desk early and late in the day, from 11 am – 12 pm and 3 pm – 4 pm. We’ll also be checking our email throughout the day.

If someone needs help from a librarian and you don’t see anyone at the Research Desk, please direct the student to our email form at http://go.middlebury.edu/askalibrarian.

As always, our hours and contact info can be found at http://go.middlebury.edu/askus. Our Find Books and Articles FAQ offers a number of good starting points too.
