Library Research Help

Having trouble finding information on a topic? Or locating a specific source?  While faculty are the experts in their subject disciplines, librarians are experts in finding sources, formats, and information about sources, knowledgeable about database content and search capacities, and other bibliographic tools.  


Liaison Librarians are available for scheduled research consultations.  So, when you are having trouble finding a particular source, searching a specific topic, or managing your research data, citations, or research impact, the NPML Librarians can help you troubleshoot your research.
