Research Assistance

Need help with your research? Our librarians and library staff are here for you!

In Person or by Phone

Peer Research Assistants, a group of your fellow students who have been trained to help staff our Service Desk, can help you start your research, find and check out books, assist with some printing issues, and make group study room reservations. Don’t know where to start your research or have a tricky research question? Ask to speak with a librarian, and we’ll work with you to find the resources you need.

Call the Service Desk at 812-941-2485 or visit us in person during our regular Library hours.

Book a Librarian

If you'd like to schedule a longer one-on-one research consultation with a librarian for advice or help with research (available in person or through Zoom), you can Book a Librarian.

Online Research Assistance

You can also reach us online in chat and by email during our regular Library hours. Leave us a message outside our regular hours and we’ll respond as soon as possible once we return.

We have also created a Canvas site designed to help students learn some basic research skills.  Students can join the site by clicking “Enroll in Course" here:
