Library Tutorials and How-To Guides

Research Basics

If you have an issue or question, call or use our “Ask a Librarian” service to chat or email us. You can also stop by the Reference desk or call +1 (914) 594-4200 and ask for a reference librarian. A reference librarian staffs the Reference desk Monday-Thursday from 11:00 AM - 3:00 PM and other times as needed. Check our library calendar page for the current holiday schedule.

If you have a more in-depth issue or question, you can arrange for a consultation, a one-on-one instruction session with a reference librarian that can be scheduled at a time that is convenient to you. Frequent topics include the library’s resources, searching a particular database, and help with a research project, but you can request your own topic when you request a consultation. To arrange for a consult, fill out the form here.

Below are some tip sheets and guides to get you started with your research.
