Whether you are starting your first research project at Williams, or have written a dozen papers already, you can benefit from a one-on-one session with a librarian.
During a research appointment, a librarian can help you:
- Find specific sources for a research paper, lab report, or other assignment
- Do a comprehensive literature review for your thesis
- Search the catalogs of major research centers or archives
- Request material through interlibrary loan
- Learn how to use subject-specific research tools
- Set up Endnote to manage your research citations
See the lists below to identify which librarian works with your department.
