Hello Dr. Weiss's students! I'm Susan Gregg, an Instruction and Reference Librarian at CSN. I'm based on the NLV campus and you can find me there at the Reference Desk or in the Online Chat Room. Please see the CSN Library Hours page for open hours for each campus and the online library help hours. I've listed some of the library resources that will work best for your research. I will be able to help you navigate the library's website and find credible information from books and ebooks, films, and articles from databases. I'll also explain how to use the tools found in databases so that you can limit results, print the articles, and get a formatted citation.
If you have any questions about using library resources, please come to campus or email your question (please allow 24 hours for email responses during the week and 48 hours on the weekend). If you need help quickly you can use our Online Chat service to talk to a librarian..
If you need help with organizing or writing your paper please call or visit a CAS location on campus. The link is available in the menu in your Canvas Course. Be mindful of the due dates your instructor has laid out. Research takes a lot of time and you should plan accordingly. Good luck on your research assignment and don't hesitate to contact me if you need help.
