1. Can I talk to someone about my research paper or project?
Yes, the reference and instruction librarians would be happy to talk to you about your research project and needs. Visit us at the Information Desk on the 2nd floor of Dunbar Library or text/call, email, IM, or make an appointment with us. You may also check the Library tab in WINGS, which will show you the contact information for the librarian for your major.
2. How do I cite this source for my paper?
Visit our guide to Citing Your Sources.
3. The library doesn’t have a book that I need. Can I get that from someplace else?
Wright State is a member of OhioLINK, a statewide consortium of 88 Ohio college and university libraries, and the State Library of Ohio. If you have borrowing privileges, you may search the OhioLINK catalog to see if you can request the book from one of them. The book will arrive at Wright State in 3-5 business days and you can return the book at Wright State as well. If you have questions, please contact the Information Desk at (937) 775-2925 or one of the ways shown on our Ask a Librarian page.
If no one in OhioLINK has the book you may request it via Interlibrary Loan.
