To get started, select the topic area to see the subject guides and any available course guides:
Ask a Puget Sound Librarian: E-mail for reference assistance from a subject liaison librarian. Puget Sound librarians work closely with faculty and can provide personalized assistance on your research. Depending on your question, we might resolve it by email, or suggest setting up an in-person appointment, so that we can work in-depth together. LibRef@pugetsound.edu is our general email address which will be automatically sent to the librarian who is the best fit for your project.
Best for: Any question, but especially in-depth research questions.
Ask a Librarian 24/7 service: Anytime, anywhere! This instant messaging reference service lets you chat with a librarian no matter what time it is. Puget Sound librarians can email you to follow up if you leave your email address.
Best for: Questions that can't wait but come up when the library is closed; also quick questions.
Subject Guides: Librarians prepare guides for departments that focus on the tools students will need to complete their research in a given discipline. Check the list, or check the Research by Subject page for your subject. Look in the left menu for 'Begin Your Research'.
Best for: Getting started with resources in specific disciplines.
