Help with Your Research & Writing
When you're learning about the academic writing process, it's helpful to know that you have lots of support around you. Take advantage of the expertise that the library & the writing center can share with you. Every time you work with their experts on a project, you will build skills that you can use the next time around, too.
If you're writing a thesis or capstone project, make an appointment with your librarian. Do this even if you feel fairly comfortable with the library's resources. Your librarian will work with you to make sure that you're searching in the right places, using effective search strategies. An appointment takes less than an hour & leads to a much better thesis or capstone!
Do you have a question? Do you need help with your research? Auraria Library offers several ways for you to get in touch.
