The library offers classroom presentations on researching in environmental design subjects. Presentations are usually held in our instruction room, 305 Wurster Hall. Individual research advisory appointments can also be arranged. We are interested in your ideas about improving existing sessions, or creating a new session tailored specifically for your research.
