Bring Your Assignment

  • Need help with your research paper? Do you have an assignment that requires using the library and its resources? Make an appointment with one of the IUP Librarians!

    Who are we?

    We are highly trained information specialists who understand both traditional library research methods, materials, and the most current means of accessing electronic information.

    As reference librarians we can provide answers to short factual questions, help you begin your research or help you choose appropriate databases and search tools at the Reference Desk. However, if you feel your research question requires individual attention, make an appointment and bring your assignment to us.

    How to Make an Appointment

    Below are reference librarians you can make individual appointments with. Any of them can help you with a research paper. However, if you have a topic that is specific to a discipline, these reference librarians are also bibliographers for certain disciplines; therefore, they provide Collection Development for the particular disciplines listed below their names.

    Please feel free to call or e-mail them to set up your individual research appointment.
