How can a librarian help you?

Librarians help you plan, complete, and share your research. SDSU's Respiratory Care librarian, Aine O'Connor, is always thrilled to work with you! Contact a librarian and/or set up an appointment if:

  • You are beginning work on a literature review, systematic review, or grant proposal requiring background research
  • You are having any trouble finding articles or other resources in library databases, Google Scholar, or other search engines
  • You need to track down statistics, citations, or other "tricky" information
  • You want guidance on how to share your research with a wider audience
  • You need a helping hand and research ally!
