Central Service Desk

Get all of your library, research, and technology questions answered at one location. A blended, walk-up central service desk provides seamless help services for technology and library needs. We envision a better support experience for our users by co-locating librarians, academic technologists, library and tech support in closer proximity to each other. While our permanent location is constructed, the library, research and technology support services are in a pilot location on the first floor of the Bush Library.
