NEVER FEAR! Even though research night is one night in November, you can get one-on-one help with your research project anytime.
Come to the Waldo Library Central Reference Desk or Science Reference Desk with your assignment and some questions. If you are in need of research help for your project, a trained expert in research (a librarian) can help you. We even have specialists in areas like business, humanities and the sciences (ask about a specialist in the area of your research - they REALLY know the specific databases). If they are not in the day you visit, ask to make an appointment with that librarian. Here is the list of over 60 specialist areas.

WMU Libraries wants to help students succeed in their research assignments. Night of the Research Paper” is a fall-themed event on Wed., November 5, 2014 from 4-9 pm at Waldo Library. Don’t be a research zombie! (Getting started early can help quell the fears)
Students will receive help through all or part of the process of a research project by librarians, Writing Center staff, and other WMU experts. Help will be available on narrowing/defining a topic, finding reliable and/or scholarly information, organizing the paper, and appropriately citing sources. Participants are asked to bring a hardcopy of the research assignment to these one-on-one consultations. We want to help our students do their best work and learn about the great materials available through the library.
The event is supported by several WMU colleges and the Friends of University Libraries. Printable fliers linked here.
Entire classes are welcome but prior notice is requested so accommodations can be made.
Also to note: Research assistance and writing help are always available at Waldo Library's Central Reference Desk, 387-5178, and the Writing Center, 387-4615.
