Technology assistance is available in the Knowledge Navigation Center.
Graduate students: Have you met your U-M Librarian yet? Did you know that you can contact a librarian via instant messaging? U-M librarians are here to assist you not only during “research dilemmas” and “technology snafus” but also at the beginning of your project, paper, investigation, presentation planning, grant-writing process, etc.
We create course-related guides for GSIs to support teaching objectives, as well as research guides that highlight broad topic areas of many disciplines, complete with helpful instructions designed to assist with the navigation of our complex set of resources while suggesting new information-seeking strategies. And don’t forget our technology-focused guides which can help you master PhotoShop, EndNote and much more!
Even though we have lots of great information online for your individual exploration, we love to talk to graduate students about their research interests and endeavors. Not only do we promote consultative appointments for busy graduate students – just contact your librarian to arrange a convenient time -- we offer various methods to contact us, at times when you need assistance, via the Ask a Librarian service (instant messaging, texting and e-mail, as well as by phone and in-person at various libraries).
Please connect to our expertise! Together we can work as partners on your academic success!
