Your Librarians: Answering Questions at Home and in Atlanta

Today is both the first day of the Atlanta Colloquium and the last day of National Library Week. One of the things we Capella Librarians do is answer reference questions. We only get to answer those questions face-to-face here at colloquia.

In celebration of National Library Week, the American Libraries Association has put up a funny video about questions at a traditional academic reference desk. And those librarians answered a lot of questions: 72.8 million of them! Your Capella librarians answered thousands of questions last year; from “how do I use the library?” to “can you help me find a dissertation about juvenile delinquency using phenomenological methodology?” And everything in between.

So, if you have a question about your research, give us a call or email (or make an appointment at colloquium).

I would just like to say thanks to Sommer Nebel for conducting a session to help in directing learners to the appropriate resources for dissertation searches. She was great at the Atlanta Colloquium 08 session on Advanced searching and finding dissertations.
