Research Services is a team of dynamic librarians who support the academic mission of Mount Holyoke through teaching research skills and curating library collections that are responsive to the needs of students, faculty, and society at large. We support student and faculty research success by teaching how to effectively and ethically discover, evaluate, use, cite and create information in all its formats. We work alongside students and faculty through one-on-one consultations, classroom visits where we provide instruction in the full range of the research process, at the Research Help Desk (virtually and in-person), via online tutorials and guides, and as embedded instructors. We practice a welcoming and compassionate approach to helping students and faculty achieve their learning, research and teaching goals and warmly invite you to reach out to us!
