Keeping computers clean

You asked:  Can you please keep the computers more clean?

Irma says: It's hard to get to the computers because they're being used so much!  We usually schedule cleaning during 24/5 and early  because they're not as busy then.  We will look into getting more sanitizing wipe dispensers.

Have a big research project?

You asked:  I need major help with finding information for a big research project.

Irma says:  You came to the right place!  It's the Libraries' job to help students find great information.  You can come to the Reference Desk in Jackson or Harold Schiffman Music Libraries and we'll be glad to help you.

Also the Special Collections and University Archives have many wonderful resources for research projects and staff to help you use them.

You may contact us virtually via phone or chat.  Another great option is to schedule an appointment with the Libraries' subject specialist or an archivist for your major.  Check out our research guides for the best resources and contact information.
