Reference Assistance

Clark Memorial Library's Reference librarians are here to help you succeed. SSU librarians can help identify the perfect resources for assignments or help you search for scholarly resources in article databases, the library catalog, and OhioLINK. The possibilities are endless so don't hesitate to Ask Us!

You may also meet SSU librarians in the classroom teaching students search strategies and how to find print and electronic resources.

There are many convenient ways to get the help you need.  Just Ask Us!

Schedule A Research Appointment

Librarians at Clark Memorial Library offer research consultations to SSU students. A research consultation provides an opportunity to meet with a librarian in a private session for approximately one hour. A research consultation can help you with a current research project, but they also help prepare you for future research needs. 

During the research consultation the librarian will assist the researcher in formulating a search strategy and identifying the best resources for your research topic.
