Research Help

We strive to be as helpful as possible when assisting patrons with research and make every effort to help patrons learn to independently use research resources and evaluate results.

  • Citation Assistance
    • We will help find the correct citation style, locate style guides and help interpret examples.
  • Printing
    • We will help patrons learn how to set up and use their own printing account.

All these services can be found through our Ask@Huron live-chat.
