Help! I Need a Topic!: I Still Need Help

Has your professor given you free license to write about anything? Do you have no idea where to start? This LibGuide will give you a few pointers on choosing a topic you love.

Who Can I Ask?

We have four librarians on staff who are happy to meet with you to explore your topic. While your professor will, of course, have final say on your topic, a librarian can help you find out how much literature is available on that subject, which can inform your final choice.

Each librarian liaises with a certain set of academic departments. Please see below to figure out who your librarian is.
