This is a "choose your own adventure" style guide that helps lead you to answers for your questions about doing research and using the library.
To use the guide, click on the "I need" statement to the right that most closely matches your question. Some of the links lead directly to an answer; some lead to further statements that clarify exactly what you need. Keep clicking on the statements that best express your question until you get to an answer.
If you don't find what you're looking for, use the blue "Email Me" button located at the bottom of every page to email your question to the librarians.
This guide is based on the Library DIY from the Portland State University Library. Many thanks to them for the inspiration.
