    • Reference librarians can help you save valuable time and also assist you with research while you job hunt or change careers.
    • Although libraries in the digital age are much more than books and magazines, don’t forget to utilize reference books and other traditional sources in the research process.
    • Search smart -- take time to learn what databases are available and how they can help you! You will save time in the long run!
