Facilities and Services: Research Help

What does "research help" mean?

Research librarians are experts in the research process, and we are here to help you!

We are available to work with students, faculty, and other patrons on

  • choosing and narrowing a research topic,
  • finding and using the best sources, and
  • navigating the many online and paper resources in the libraries' collection.

Research help is available weekday afternoons and evenings in Lilly Library, (view calendar to see Research Help Desk hours) and by appointment with a research librarian (use the form below).

Earlham's librarians are proud to often lead research instruction sessions for particular classes, groups, and assignments in consultation with faculty members.

To contact a research librarian:
