Liaison librarians

Liaison librarians can help you search for and select the best sources for your paper or project, develop research questions, identify research strategies, evaluate the usefulness of specific sources, and find relevant and reliable information and data online. We have a team of liaison librarians who partner with WRT150 teachers to support your research needs.   Your librarian may visit your class, meet with you one-on-one, and provide assistance via email.  Ask your teacher for the name of the librarian assigned to your class.  Here is a link to the library's guide to WRT150 related resources: http://libguides.gvsu.edu/writing150
