Welcome to the guide for Library and Information Science!

I hope that you will find this guide a useful starting place for your research in Library and Information Science. I have assembled a core collection of resources available through the Wayne State University Library System, as well as high quality, freely available web resources. This guide is a collaborative work-in-progress, developed with the suggestions and feedback from students and faculty in the School of Library and Information Science.

Feel free to contact me by email or by telephone if you have a question about library services or you need some help finding resources. I am also available by appointment to assist students and faculty with research related to Library and Information Science.

Faculty are welcome to contact me to schedule research workshops for classes or to suggest items for purchase.

Cindy Krolikowski
