Merry Lea Online Library Training


  1. Read the following section Merry Lea Library Training -- Contacting a Research Librarian

Lesson -- Contacting a Research Librarian

In the previous sections of library training you have learned about the different resources available to you through the Goshen College Library as a online student.  As a online student you are able to access the exact same resources as on campus students.  A resource that is perhaps as important as the books and articles available to you is the research librarian.  



Librarians can serve as an invaluable resource as you journey through your academic program.  They can assist in finding specific resources, as well as serving as a research coach, helping with focusing topics and talking through research questions.  Librarians can also help with citations, including in text citations, reference pages, and using citation generator tools.

While you may not be able to visit the research librarian at the Ask Desk in person on the Goshen you can contact us through various other means.

  • E-mail: e-mail the librarians individually or through our shared email
  • Chat with a Librarian: librarians at the Ask Desk are available through virtual chat.  Look for the Chat with a Librarian box on the far right hand column of the library website to talk with a librarian through this method.
  • Phone: call the librarians individually or through our front desk number (574) 535-7427
