1: Research & Course guides

The subject librarians create guides for every subject taught at St. Thomas.  They also make guides for many of our courses and guides around different topics and current events.  These guides will point you to the best starting places for your research and will give you expert advice on how to use them. 

Make sure to take a look at our community and how-to guides for other topics like how to cite your sources or information resources for voting and civic engagement

It happens to all of us, sometimes you're using the library and just need to ask a quick question. Well, fear not! We have many ways to help you.  Use the Chatbox that is always in the lower-left corner of our website.  Chats are answered 24/7 by a librarian. If our librarians aren't working when you are, a librarian from another university will be online to answer the chat.  If chat isn't your thing, click Ask a Librarian in the upper left corner to send your question in via our Ask a Librarian form, call us, or check our reference desk hours, when you can come in and talk with a Peer Research Assistant or librarian in person.
