Pete McDonnell | Librarian: For Students

Libary Information for Students, Faculty, and Staff

Greetings and welcome / welcome back to Bemidji State University! We're glad you're here!

Why reach out to a librarian? Great question. Librarians are the people you can turn to with questions about using the library resources for research in your classes. We can provide personalized assistance for “all things Library”, including the following:

  • Give you a tour of the library.
  • Help you brainstorm a research topic.
  • Help you create research strategies.
  • Help you identify library resources (articles and books) and services, including in-depth assistance on navigating library databases.

Specialties:  I work with the following programs/departments, so I can help with research projects specific to:

  • Biology
  • Chemistry
  • Criminal Justice
  • Education
  • Nursing
  • Physics
