Reference and Research Services

Reference services provide patrons with help in finding library materials within the MLC library and from sources outside the library.

Reference Librarians help people...

  • find information on a topic
  • develop research strategies for papers and projects
  • search the library catalog, article databases, and the internet
  • locate facts and statistics

We also...

  • answer questions about the services and resources of the MLC library
  • provide instruction on the research process and the use of the library
  • refer people to information sources beyond the library
  • Interlibrary loan of books and other material from other branch libraries in the same library system, or from a cooperating library anywhere in the world.

Library users are encouraged not to be shy about asking the reference librarian for help. Even though some librarians may appear busy working on a project, their primary duty when they are at the desk is to help library users find what they are looking for.
