Reference Services librarians and staff are generalists who can help you get started as you explore your research topics.  We can also refer you to one of the many subject specialist librarians.


Subject Pages and Resources

These pages were created by subject librarians and point to general and specialized information resources in their respective fields.  See the subject home page for the names and contact information for the subject specialist.


Research Consultations

Request a consultation with a librarian.  You will be contacted by the librarian who is most familiar with the information resources in your field of research.  Research consultations are usually 30-60 minutes.


Research Guides

These guides identify resources and strategies for the most requested research subjects including book reviews, biographical information, and more.


Dissertations and Theses

For those working on dissertations or theses, the IU Libraries can help throughout the process.

Subject Librarians may turn out to be your most valuable resource.

Finding Dissertations: A Research Guide will help you identify work that has already been done in your field.

Funding for Dissertations and Theses identifies local (IU-Bloomington) funding resources for faculty and graduate students.


Bibliographic Citation Management Software

"Citation management tools enable researchers to capture bibliographic information about research materials, create bibliographies, add footnotes, and manage research collections.  Some citation management tools also make it easy to share references with other researchers." (Digital Research Tool Wiki. Accessed Dec. 14, 2011.) Introductory workshops are offered through the University Information Technology Services (UITS) IT Training.


IUB Library Workshops

Most workshops are 1 hour and do not require registration.  The Seminar Series introduces important information resources and services including interlibrary loan, and copyright issues.  Other workshops are usually focused on a specific resource or field of study.
