WSU librarians can help you identify research strategies, develop research questions, search for relevant and reliable information and data, select sources, and cite information. A librarian can visit your class, or meet with you one-on-one or in groups (in-person and online). While all librarians help students with projects in any discipline, liaison librarians provide customized services in each academic department. Locate liaison librarians and make an appointment by visiting the Ask a Librarian page, https://libguides.worcester.edu/askus.
