Research Help - 911!!

The semester may be coming to a close, but we know students are just gearing up for end-of-year papers and exams. Here are some quick survival tips!

Need help with your research during the wee hours of the night? Musselman Library now has access to "Ask Here PA," a state-wide reference service that provides users with access to a librarian 24/7. What does this mean for you? It's simple! If you have a burning research question when the reference desk is not staffed (10:00pm-9:00am), simply connect to Ask Here PA from the "Ask a Librarian" link off the library website and a helpful librarian from somewhere in the region or across the country who is staffing the 24 hour service will be able to help.

Citations, citations, citations! If you need help formatting citations for a paper, check out the Musselman Library "Citation Guide." This guide provides helpful links to several online citation manuals for commonly used styles (MLA, Turabian, APA, etc.). Students also love using SourceAid which builds citations for you. Give it a try!
