How to Get Help

Need help with finding a book, finding full text, using the Hardin Library? The reference desk is staffed whenever our library is open. They can be reached by email, phone or chat here:

Need more in depth assistance with your research? Would you like to sit down with a librarian to discuss your search and work out your strategy? Are you a faculty member who would like to have a librarian teach your students how to use CINAHL, PubMed, or other resources? Contact me directly at

For distance students and others who cannot travel to campus, we can arrange a phone or video meeting, or I can advise over email. Often, I will create a video specific to your topic to provide guidance in search methods.
