Help & Assistance
If you encounter any problems with finding information, there are several sources of assistance:
- Your Subject Specialist Librarian
As the topics covered in the Department of Human Development & Family Studies are interdisciplinary, two librarians are available to help faculty and students:
- Hailey Mooney is the departmental liaison to HDFS. She is also the librarian for numeric data and statistics, sociology, and social work. Please see her contact info to your right.
- Ask A Librarian
The Main Library Reference service provides multiple options to get in touch with a reference librarian via in-person, phone, email, online chat, and text. This service is best for general questions which require a quick response, e.g. citation lookup assistance. For in-depth subject specific research assistance, contact your subject specialist librarian.
- Distance Learning Services 24/7 Support Line
Provides both on-campus and distance learners with 24/7 support for technology/connection problems in using any MSU resource including library e-resources and ANGEL.
