Librarians can provide assistance with many types and all stages of research projects for all members of the NCF community. In addition to discussing and locating information resources and search strategies for class assignments, presentations, proposals, and theses, we can also provide project management guidance including narrowing/broadening you research idea, formulating a clear research question/statement, and reviewing tools for managing and annotating citations and sources (Zotero, for instance).
Although there are many helpful and skilled staff members in our library, there are three faculty librarians who are experts in conducting research and guiding researchers through all stages of the writing and discovery process.
