What your librarian can do for you?

I'm your librarian and I specialize in finding criminal justice research. So feel free to contact me for help for any of your classes! You can:

Make an appointment with me to cover a specific research topic in depth. Click on the Schedule Appointment button to select a meeting request. I completely understand many CJ graduate students have busy schedules so if you would like to meet outside of regular working hours, send me an email and let's see if we can find a time that works for you. 

Email me your questions – I'm here to help!

Can't reach me? The Library has an excellent Research Assistance desk that is staffed by knowledgeable librarians. See the Ask the Research Assistance desk box above for more details!
