I have a research question.  What can I ask the reference librarian?

The librarians can answer a wide variety of questions, but we do have a few limits on what we can answer.

• Questions need to be able to be answered in a few sentences.

• We can only answer questions as staff time permits.

• We do not interpret any information, including legal, medical or financial information, and we won’t do student’s homework.

• We can get you the facts, but we are not doctors, lawyers or accountants.

• We may not be able to provide certain materials due to copyright or user agreements.

• We will provide citations.

• We cannot search beyond our holdings.

"I think a good novel would be where a bunch of men on a ship are looking for a whale. They look and look, but you know what? They never find him. And you know why they never find him? It doesn't say. The book leaves it up to you, the reader, to decide. Then, at the very end, there's a page you can lick and it tastes like Kool-Aid."
