Attention Plebes: Nimitz Librarians are hosting special drop-in sessions for their Personal Librarian companies in the evenings of March 28-31. You'll have a chance to come talk to your personal librarian with any research questions you have, learn about the librarians who specialize in your major, and have some freshly popped popcorn while you are here! Keep an eye on your email for more details in the coming weeks.
Do you need help with a research assignment? Our new online system makes it easy to book an appointment with a research librarian. Is it crucial that you can find a time that fits into your busy schedule? Use our general appointment calendar. Do you need to speak with a subject specialist? Find the right expert and make an appointment here. Other options are available on our Get Help page.
Our lunchtime performances by the USNA Band and our faculty research talks are off to a great start, and we’ve got several more left on the schedule before it becomes crunch time in the spring semester. Different ensembles grace the library for concerts, while faculty have a chance to highlight their research for an audience of non-experts. All midshipmen, faculty, and staff are invited.
Grab your lunch (or purchase one here) and a friend and join us for these lunchtime events!
