Are you interested in knowing which areas of Worcester have the highest rates of hypertension? Or what areas in Central Massachusetts have known environmental contamination? How about visualizing Covid-19 vaccination rates by average income levels in local neighborhoods? We have a resource for that!
Need to know if you can post a copy of your article on your personal website? There’s a librarian for that. Need to share your data to fulfill funding requirements? There’s a librarian for that. Need to get access to an article behind a paywall? There’s a librarian for that. Thinking about writing a systematic review but don’t know how to start your search? Yup, there’s a librarian for that, too.

What’s your h-index? Should you care? What does it mean?
Is anyone tweeting about your recent paper?
Is publishing in journals with high impact factors really important for your job search (or tenure)?
How easily can you locate your data files when you need them? Is your data being backed up? Do you know where to find those backups? Have you discussed data management with your advisor or is there a lab-wide data management plan?
As of November 1, 2020, the Lamar Soutter Library has discontinued the live “Ask a Librarian” chat feature. But never fear! Your librarians are still available to answer your questions! Our Ask A Librarian email submission form is still available 24/7 (questions are answered Monday through Friday, 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.). Librarians can also be emailed directly – find your librarian in our Staff Directory.
