As the quarter winds down here at Lake Washington Technical College you are all probably stressing out about research papers, presentations, and final exams.

Maybe you have something in mind for that research paper, but you’re not quite sure how to get started or how to get some really great articles out of ProQuest. Maybe you are dreading putting together your references/works cited page because you haven’t discovered the awesome power of NoodleBib, which helps you cite your references in the format your instructors want to see.


For the next THREE final Saturdays of the quarter (November 15th, 22nd, and December 6th) our newest Librarian, Heather Davis, will be on hand to answer questions, help you develop an information strategy for that daunting 5 page paper, orient you to NoodleBib, and much, much MORE.

But wait . . . THERE’S MORE!

Also for the next THREE final Saturdays of the quarter the Reference Desk on the 3rd floor will be manned by our own Heather Davis from noon to 2PM. If you find yourself sitting at a computer workstation, at one of those long tables on the 3rd floor, or anywhere else in the Library and realize you need some assistance in locating information then head on over to the Reference Desk where Heather will be more than happy to help you.

After 2PM you can still reach Heather via Meebo or simply ask for her at the Circulation Desk. For those of you working from home on Saturday you can call, email, or use Meebo to ask questions and get the help you need.
