Research & Instruction

We are here to help with your research and instruction needs. Contact us any time for assistance with research related questions and issues.

SciTech Librarians work with faculty to teach library sessions about the types of resources the library has to help students with assignments. A subject specialist librarian can visit a class or teach an in-the-library instruction session. Contact any of the librarians here or fill out an instruction request form.
