No one is born knowing how to do academic research. It's a process that takes some time to learn. There are many resources available to help you as you navigate your own research projects.
CSUSB Research Help
Reference librarians: Librarians are trained in the practice of research and are familiar with tools available at CSUSB. There are many ways to ask a librarian a question, in-person on the first floor of the Pfau library, by phone, text message, or 24-hour chat.
Library Guides: Library guides are tools that librarians have created that guide you through different research processes or suggest useful resources. These are available to you 24 hours a day.
Visual Resources Center: The Visual Resources Specialist can also help you with your art-related projects. You can drop by during regular hours, make an appointment, or ask a question on twitter, facebook, or skype.
