General Library Information

Research Help

Librarians are available for each discipline. They can help you navigate databases, obtain materials, help with copyright, use images, cite resources, or interpret thesis requirements. Please contact your subject librarian with any questions.


Borrowing and Due Dates

Thesis students can check books out until the last day of their graduating semester. For information on getting books and other materials for your thesis please see our Get Books webpage. If you need help finding or obtaining materials for your thesis, contact your subject librarian.


Purchasing Books and Media

If we do not own a resource that would be integral to your thesis, contact your subject librarian as we may be able to purchase either a physical or digital copy.


Thesis Desk and Lockers

Due to necessary seismic construction, thesis desks will not be assigned for the 2021-2022 academic year. Instead, an area of the library will be reserved for thesis students. Assigned thesis shelving are available for storing books, and lockers will be available free of charge. To sign up for thesis shelf space fill out the Thesis Self Assignment Form. If you have any questions, please Ask a Librarian
