Find a Library Ambassador

 Ambassadors are undergraduate students with extensive training in library resources and in the research process. They can help you narrow down a research topic, show you how to use the library's website and Google Scholar, and help you find sources such as peer-reviewed articles, ebooks, newspapers, and more. The library has ambassadors available online in drop-in Zoom rooms and stationed in various locations throughout the main and Kingsport-Allendale campuses. Visit our Library Ambassador page for locations and times.
