Meet your librarians and learn how they can help you succeed

Meet the NNU Librarians

On the left-hand side of this page, we have included our contact information and a photo.

Each of us has a master's degree in a library science field. Any of us can help you with research and citation.


How we can help:

  • Help you understand the research process
  • Assist with topic selection, narrowing your topic, or revision of your topic
  • Help you navigate databases and teach you how to craft a good search
  • Teach you how to evaluate sources for relevance, authority, and accuracy
  • Show you how to cite sources properly -- and show you how to save a lot of time!
