on Demand office.
of the library’s resources are available online, meaning you can use the library
from wherever you happen to be. CMU credentials allows students and staff
round-the-clock access to the library’s electronic resources, including
journals, ebooks, videos, and article databases.
addition to the collections, the library provides a wide array of services for GAs.
Reference librarians can be contacted by email, chat, or telephone for help
with research. If in-depth help is needed a research consultation can be scheduled
with the subject
librarian in your discipline area.
In a consultation, a librarian works one-on-one with you on a particular
research assignment or task, helping to locate materials and answering
questions. Most graduate students find research consultations very helpful.
librarians also provide instruction in the use of the library to undergraduate
and graduate classes. Whether your class is face-to-face or online, a librarian
is available to join your class to teach your students about the library
resources and services available to them.
library also houses the CMU Writing Center, the Mathematics Assistance Center,
and the Statistical Consulting Center on the 3rd floor. These
helpful services are available online as well.
