Hi, we're finishing up our book buying for the year, but we will still take requests for items needed for reserve or needed quickly for research projects. You can now also indicate on your interlibrary loan requests if you think a book would make a good addition to the collection. I look at these comments and decide if we should buy the book or borrow it. If we can get the book here quickly, we'll probably buy it instead of borrowing it. I'll contact you directly if you make a request this way.

"Book A Librarian"
USC students, faculty and staff who want help with their research can make an appointment for a free consultation service that provides a person-to-person session with a librarian. The sessions can help identify ways to access and navigate electronic resources; develop search strategies; discover and locate primary source materials; search the web for relevant and reliable information; and locate materials for a literature review.
