WNC Library: Help

Help Me With...

Academic Coaching
One of the most useful resources that you can access through the library is our online academic coaching platform. Through the link in your Canvas courses, you will be able to connect with our academic coaches who will be happy to guide you as you work through class assignments or research a paper on a wide range of subjects. Drop in assistance is available during regular library hours.

Research Guides
The librarians at WNC have created guides to help you find information about the different subjects you may be researching and the types of papers you may be expected to write. Use the Research Guides link in the Quick Links box on the left to view the available guides or visit this page for more information.

For information about how to use the research guides, please see the Research Guides section of the WNC Library Services page.
