Getting HELP

While at USF you will be asked to use library resources for many projects in your classes. If you need help completing those projects, whether it is a question of verifying facts, developing a topic or research question, or filling an information gap, help is just a click away. 

The video below will show you how to:

  • Identify types of online assistance available to you through the library help links.
  • Locate the librarian for your area of study.
  • Find where you can sign up for an appointment with a librarian.
  • Identify what kind of assistance is available at the Library Services Desk.


View the video below about links off the library web page and to librarians who can help you with your research.


Help at the Library Services Desk includes Library Research Assistants who can help get you with everything from questions about whether the library has your textbook all the way to questions about how to start that research paper you have been assigned. The video below outlines LRA services.
