This is a guide to services and tools available via K-State Libraries.  I am available to assist with your research needs at any step in the research process from idea formulation through to publication.  I offer one-on-one consultations either in person or via Zoom. You can email me  or check my online schedule. You can also contact Research Help services during the library Help Desk hours.

When is it good to contact Cindy?
