Don't overlook one of your best resources - your Gallucci-Cirio Librarians! Need help getting started, developing your search strategy, focusing your topic and selecting "keywords", deciding what type of resources you need as well as how to use them? The librarians are here to assist you whether you have a home work assignment or an indepth research project to complete. Stop by my office, call or email me any time. To ensure that I will be available, you can always schedule an appointment. Use my "Schedule an Appointment" button to see my general office hours when I should be available if you just want to "drop in" or to make an appointment; additional times are available by contacting me directly.
