Koerner Library supports teaching, learning, and research in the humanities and social sciences. Reference help and format specialists (for maps, government publications, data) are available for consultation on both a drop-in and appointment basis. Koerner houses an extensive print collection of books, journals, maps, and government publications. In addition, it licenses a wide range of electronic journals, books, and databases relevant to the humanities and social sciences. Koerner is also the home of the Library’s Research Commons, an emerging constellation of services targeted to graduate students and faculty, which include: thesis and citation formatting support, peer led interdisciplinary research discussions, an extensive instructional program, a data and GIS lab, copyright services and support, and assistance getting research published in cIRcle, the Library’s institutional repository.
