7 Tips to Get the Most Out of Your Library

We asked library faculty and staff for their top tips and here’s what they told us:

#1 ASK for help

Stop by the reference desks in Bailey/Howe and Dana Medical Library, email a question, chat, text, call or make an appointment with a subject specialist in your area.

#2 Use subject guides

Our team has created guides in each subject area to help you get started with the absolute best sources – from online databases to books to websites.

#3 Borrow stuff

Our fabulous interlibrary loan team will borrow anything we don’t own from another library and get it to you as quickly as possible.

#4 Kick back with culture
