If you are not affiliated with the college, please note that the librarians can only answer questions about the following: U.S. Government information and/or federal government documents on deposit in our library; Davidson College; materials that are unique to Davidson College. We regret that we cannot provide other types of reference assistance to unaffiliated users.
Meet one-on-one with a research librarian to discuss strategies and possible information sources for research projects, class assignments, papers, presentations, honors theses, and the like. Meetings usually last thirty minutes to an hour.
