The HEC library liaison team is available to collaborate with you. We are available to discuss your course or assignment revisions related to research and writing.

Use our online form to refer students for research, writing, and APA help.

We also provide Academic Integrity (AI) remediation services with students in the library after a formal referral by an AI committee member is received. HEC Faculty may also refer students for an informal AI remediation session, contact Shilo Smith for more details. Help your students avoid an AI violation by sharing the Academic Integrity Checklist with them.
