Road Through Library Research: Rest Stop

Rest Stop Tips

At this point, you may be overwhelmed with all of the options for doing research in the library. Don't be! Research skills take time to learn and do well. If you're feeling frustrated and need help, reach out to the librarians using the Roadside Assistance tab in this guide. 

If you need a break from your research, check out some of these other cool things you can do at the library!


Visit the makerspace on the first floor of the library to use the 3D printers, laser etcher, VR lab, gadgets, and arts and crafts.
