Library Orientation (Fall 2023): Services and research help

This guide introduces the Library and its services to new Marianopolis students. It supplements information that all students receive through the Library Orientation session that they receive in their English 603-101-MQ course.

Circulation Desk

The Circulation Desk can be found at far end of the Main Floor. It is the place to go if you need to check out items from the Library, ask for items from our Reserves Collection, or have any general questions about the Library. The Library's helpful Circulation Desk staff will be happy to help you out.

Reference Desk - Research and citation style help

The Reference Desk can be found on the Main Floor, beside the student computers. At the Reference Desk, you can get him finding a particular book, using the computers in the Library, using Library databases, citation styles and more. You can get 1-on-1 help from a Library at the Reference Desk anytime during Library hours.

The Library's online chat service is also available to you. Chat with a Librarian online anytime between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m.



You can also send us your question anytime through the LibAnswers question form. We will reply to you as quickly as possible.



We also provide students with research assistance though the Library's LibGuides website. Our Performing Academic Research LibGuide is a good place to start.

The Library Staff at the Reference Desk are also happy to provide any help you need with any of the citation styles used at the College. In particular, we have extensive experience with the MLA, APA, Chicago, and ASA citation styles, and are familiar with many others. Just drop by the Reference Desk with your citation questions. If we don't know the answer, we'll help you figure it out!

We've also put together an online Citation Styles Guide on our LibGuides website. This guide has extensive information on the MLA, APA, Chicago, and ASA citation styles, including examples and useful links.
