How to Research This Topic
My name is Adriana Parker, and I'm the librarian for TRANSFORM.
Yes, you have your own librarian!
My job is to help you to learn and understand how to navigate the library AND the university systems, and I really do want to help. If you need a hand with any research project or question (research- or university-related), please don't hesitate to reach out to me. Just email email@example.com. If email doesn't work best for you, let me know what does. I'm also available by text, phone, Zoom, Instagram & Facebook Messengers, Google Chat, Google Hangouts, and FaceTime, though it'll probably take us one email exchange to set things up.
Or if it's 3:00 am, you're really stressed out, and need immediate help, you can talk with an on-duty librarian using that little box below.
