You are furiously finishing that paper that is due in five and a half hours, and need that last reference to tie the paper together. To top it off you are using a citation format that you are unfamiliar with.
Where can you go some Reference help at this hour?
There a few options at your disposal:
- You can chat with a librarian using our 24/7 chat service.
- There are library guides available for most disciplines. You can browse by subject or class. There is also a search box in the upper right hand corner that will allow you to look for specific information within all the guides. The results also allow you to click on a page level link to where the information was found. Each library guide is filled with details on the best resources for that subject, from encyclopedias to databases.
- There are also many online resources available for citation management help, as detailed in last week’s blog post.
If your paper is due later in the day or week you can always stop by the Reference Desk at Olin, or email us. We will be more than happy to help you get those final details of your final paper set.
