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've created a better support environment for our users by co-locating librarians, academic technologists, library and tech support at the same service desk. Visit us on the first floor of Bush Memorial Library.
