Good question, let's briefly talk library history. Back before Google (or even the Internet) existed, library reference desks were the hottest places around to find the answer to such burning questions as:
The term "reference desk" is a holdover from the early days when librarians would often consult reference books to answers these questions.

(PS: if you want to see more fun reference questions, check out this Mental Floss article and be glad for the anonymity of the Internet)
You can find the reference desk across from the front entrance of the library (near the Study Abroad office and the puzzle table). We have librarians ready to help you from 8 am to 7 pm. Not on campus/can't make it to the library? We are also available:
Happy researching, and we hope to see you soon!
