Hello! I look forward to working with you. Please email details about your research question, project, or even a copy of the class assignment with you. I can specifically help with library questions related to:
- Physics and Astronomy
I can meet with you via Zoom/Teams. If you prefer to meet f-f, we can meet in a conference room in the Engineering Library and still be socially distanced. The Engineering Library is located in G-33 Benedum Hall.
If you can't find a time in my calendar that works for you, please email me to see if we can arrange another time.
Judy Brink, Head, Engineering Library
