Librarians and staff at the six K-State Libraries are always happy to point you in the right direction, whether you’re looking for the stacks or researching an esoteric topic. Walk up to any of our Help Desks, or contact us via phone, email, chat, or text using the Ask a Librarian link on our home page. Increase your research effectiveness by coming in for a class or a tour. In Hale Library, pull a Collaboration Station to your favorite spot and see how much easier group work becomes when you have a giant screen. Or, for more solitary scholarly pursuits, hit the first floor quiet zone or find a secluded nook. When you need a break, grab a coffee or snack from the Bookend Café, a book from our Leisure Reading collection, and settle on a comfy couch.
For those days when you just can’t make it to campus, access to electronic journals, databases, ebooks, tutorials, subject guides, and expert help is available from the Libraries’ website at www.lib.k-state.edu.
