• Welcome from the Reference Librarian!

    Welcome to our Library blog!
    As reference librarian, I help students with their research, both individually and in classroom orientations. My regular hours are M-F, 9 a.m. – 1 p.m. (with some variation.)
    Instructors: I am happy to do library/research orientations for your classes and can adjust my schedule to fit your class meeting times. These are information-packed, hands-on sessions held in the library’s classroom.
    You can find me at the Reference Desk in the Library, phone me at 651-423-8345 or e-mail me at Barbara.Tuttle@dctc.edu.
