Public Administration: HELP!

Director of Library Services

I need help! What can I do?

First, don't panic.  Second,

  • talk to your professor, especially if you are confused or unsure about the assignment.
  • request a research consultation with a librarian.  We are available in the library during operational hours as well as by phone, email, and chat.
  • talk to your fellow students.  They may have insights, or they may be just as confused as you are.  Either way, you have support.
  • take a break.  Sometimes not thinking about your assignment will help you refocus and gain insight.
