* Laboratory for Laser Energetics Subject Guide: Resources

LLE subject guide


    Hi, my name is Ben Mitchell and I am your LLE Librarian at Carlson Library. I help faculty and students locate useful information resources and tools for their research and study. I also teach library classes & workshops, create online resources/course guides, and manage the mechanical engineering, earth, environmental sciences, and laser energetics collections for River Campus Libraries. 

    This guide provides the most widely used information resources and tools for the Laboratory for Laser Energetics. If you have more questions, or need help on finding articles and books, managing your report citations, or anything else, please contact me! I am happy to meet with you and discuss any of your information resources needs. You can also contact me by email, phone, or online chat. My contact information can be found in the "LLE Librarian" box to the right below my picture in this guide.
