So Many Ways to Get Help!

Ask a Puget Sound Librarian: E-mail for reference assistance from a subject liaison librarian. 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. Eli is your librarian...check out his contact information --->

Best for: Any question, but especially in-depth research questions.

Just drop by! There are librarians available on-call at Collins Library every weekday, typically from 9am-6pm. Check the library website to see who is available at which hours each week. 

Best for: Getting quick help during the weekday. 

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; citation questions; tracking down specific books and articles. 

Final Project

Choose an anatomical abnormality or disease/disorder that interests you, and decide who your audience will be: 

  •  Clinicians as your audience: Write a paper (~1000 words)
  • Scientists as your audience: Give a slide presentation to the class during finals (~5 min)
  • Community as your audience: Create an artistic tri-fold pamphlet or large format flyer

Step 3: What do you need to include?

  • Demographics (who gets and how many have the disease)
  • Signs/Symptoms
  • Causes
  • Treatments
  • Prognosis (outcome)

What might help you frame your research?

  • Is it an acute or chronic condition?
  • Who treats it? (surgeons? Physical therapists?)
  • Is it part of a larger group of conditions/disorders?
  • Are there more specific variations of this condition?
  • Is there more than one name for this condition?
