    Research/Reference Support

    UDC librarians provide reference and research support at both the Van Ness and 801 North Capitol street library locations. 

    Ask us about:

    • Finding and using books and other library materials
    • Identifying a research topic/question
    • Searching for information/sources for research
    • Using library databases
    • Evaluating information
    • Citing sources
    • Any other questions you have about the library!

    Here's how you can get help from UDC librarians: 


    The Circulation Desk is open and staffed whenever the library is open. Currently, it is located in the Van Ness library in Building 71, 3rd Floor.

    Circulation technicians are able to assist you with borrowing and returning books and DVDs. It is also the pickup location for items requested via CLS or ILL, and for items that professors have placed on Reserve.
