Research with Library Resources (Fashion)


My name is Selene Pineda, and I am your librarian for this course. My goal is to help you gain a better understanding of the research process and improve your research skills.

Please take a moment to view my video and learn a little about me. And then explore the rest of this guide to get you prepared for your research projects. See you online!


Ways to contact me

Besides posting your questions in the Research Help: Ask Your Librarian! discussion post in your Canvas course, you can also contact me in the following ways.

My schedule this semester is Monday - Thursday, and if you contact me, please allow 24 - 48 business hours to get a response from me. If you need assistance on other days and especially if the matter is urgent, I recommend you to reach out to my librarian colleagues via the Library email, Cranium Café or our 24/7 Chat. We'll do our best to help you out as your success is our priority!
