Librarians and Library Staff

In addition to books, journals, anatomical models and our online collection, we have fun things such as puzzles. But one of our most important and often overlooked resource is our staff!

The library staff are able to help you find resources, organize and strategize your research, access the full text of scholarly articles and troubleshoot anything else that's getting in the way of your learning - like those pesky printing issues, or citation questions.

We all have special areas of knowledge and expertise, but work together as a team to respond to student and campus needs. Not sure who can help you? Ask any library staff member, and we'll make sure you find what you're looking for!

Come to the library and let us know what we can help you with today, or get in touch today!
