Multi-section general education contacts:  

All other classes: Contact any of these librarians to: 

  • Schedule a librarian to come to your classroom and provide hands-on learning (students bring laptops)
  • Develop online instructional materials related to an assignment

Library research consultations are also available for students (individual or small group) needing in-depth assistance.

Collaborate with a librarian

  • Have something that frustrates you about student research performance or that you want to "tweak" about a course? Collaborate with a librarian to develop ideas, activities, assignments.
  • Librarians can embed research content from library guides right within your Northwest Online site!!  Ask us.

Student choices

Research services for projects and readings:

B.D. Owens Librarians can help students identify starting resources and search strategies for chosen projects. The librarians can help faculty build links to a topical collection of readings.
