This week classes meet only Monday and Tuesday, after the weekend starts Study Week, and then Finals’ Week will be here. Maybe you’re all caught up on your assignments, but if you still have some work to do, consider the ways that Galvin Library can help:

Stop by the Research Help Office on the second floor of Galvin from 10am to 4pm Monday through Friday and from 12pm to 4pm Sunday to meet with a friendly librarian. Librarians have Masters Degrees,  meaning they are experts at helping students discover, evaluate and use information. The office is private so you will feel comfortable asking questions.

Research Specialists 
On evenings and weekends the Research Help Office is staffed with peer-tutors known as Research Specialists. They are highly trained and specially selected upper level student leaders at IIT. They have done many of the same assignments as you, and can help you find the sources they know professors want to see. They have also been trained to assist with your writing questions, and meeting with one of these students is an excellent option for anyone who may be busy during the day when the Writing Center is open.

When it’s too cold to walk from one building to the next, or you’re out of town on holiday, you can instant message, email, or even text message us your questions. You can also search one of our many subscription databases with peer-reviewed journals. We are famous for our quick response times. Reach us online at library.iit.edu/ask.

On Your Own
For the DIY student, use our online Research Guides at library.iit.edu/subjects. These guides identify which of the more than 100 databases Galvin subscribes to will be the best for your topic. It provides you with search methods, evaluation tips, and much more.
