Students and faculty at USF Sarasota-Manatee have access to a robust set of resources to aid them in researching classroom topics, including the Cook Library and a broad range of web-based research tools.
Our librarians are here to help you make the most of those resources. Our librarians provide reference and research assistance in all courses of study, and can help you to better organize and execute your search for the things you need to get the job done. If you’re a student, a librarian can help you develop better strategies for tracking down hard-to-find information for a research project. Instructors are encouraged to contact a librarian to schedule a library instruction session for your class. Each session is designed to meet the specific needs of your class.
We also offer a series of open attendance workshops throughout the semester.
