Distance Students: Help With Research

A guide to help distance students with their research needs.

Purpose of This Section

This section contains helpful resources for beginning your research, how to interact with resources, how to cite resources correctly, and where to go for more focused help on the various steps of your research.

Help Available From the Library

Research appointments can be done over the phone—these take roughly 30-60 minutes. You may need to check your spam folder for a reply from us. 

Our LibGuides are detailed guides that will walk you through subjects, tools, and classes at SEBTS.

We also have chat boxes on the side of some of our library webpages for instant access to all of your research needs.  

Finally, check out our FAQ page for any and all questions you may have about the library and/or school.
