The Reference Department is responsive to the information and instructional needs of the ISU community. It provides assistance to patrons (both students and faculty) as they use library materials in pursuit of research and curriculum related information needs.
The Reference Desk is located on the first floor of the library. Reference assistance is also available in the following ways:
