Librarians can assist you with quick questions or preparing for longer research projects. Use librarian contact information on a relevant subject guide or send an email to email@example.com.
We offer classes, workshops, and seminars on library research. We also tailor library instruction for specific curricula, as well as for lab or research groups or journal clubs.
Start your research with collections of resources our librarians curate for specific disciplines.

Research Proposals and Funding
Improve the quality and transparency of your research by registering your plan before you implement it. Better yet, over 260 journals will peer review and provisionally accept your study before you begin data collection, so publication doesn’t hinge upon the results.
Pre-registration templates are also a useful process tool to help you document your research.
