There's No Such Thing As A Stupid Question… | learntoteachblog


Using library resources and doing research can often be intimidating and anxiety-producing for students. It's frustrating to not know where to go, where to look, or what to do. Some students worry about looking uninformed or asking a "bad" question.

We were all students once! Your library and your librarians are here to help. The whole reason we're here is to help you!  We want to encourage you to ask us anything, even if you think you "should know" already. If you're stuck, or having problems with a research assignment, that's why we're here.

If you're stressed about research, ask us! Library and research anxiety is a very real thing that a lot of students experience and we want to help.
