Term paper blues?

by Ginger Williams on March 29, 2011 in Odum Library

April is right around the corner, and with it comes the term paper blues. It’s a busy month in the library as our students are scrambling to find enough resources to cite in their research papers.

If you’re feeling frustrated and can’t find what you need, we’re here to help.

Why not stop by the reference desk on the second floor of the library? Reference Librarians and Peer Reference Counselors are here until 10PM most days to help you with your research questions. We’ll gladly show you how to find books in our catalog, how to find peer-reviewed journal articles, how to request things that Odum Library doesn’t have, and how to cite your sources.

You can get help online, too. Maybe you’re shy, maybe you don’t want your friends to see you talking to a Librarian, or maybe you just want to stay in your dorm room and work on your paper in your pajamas. You can chat with us or send us an email at http://www.valdosta.edu/library/ask.php.

The choice is yours. You can try to figure it all out on your own, or you can save yourself some time and talk to a Librarian. We want to help you find the information you need, and we definitely don’t want you to have the term paper blues!
