Students Engage at Main (The SEAM) is dedicated to helping students become better researchers. We provide resources, assistance, and services that support undergraduate research, learning, and student success.

The SEAM is located in rooms 2012/2013 on the SW side of the second floor of The Main Library.


Dedicated to supporting undergraduate research, learning, and success, The SEAM hosts extended research assistance hours and other programs that help undergraduate students develop and improve research skills and critical thinking.

Librarians and staff working in The SEAM also collaborate with faculty and instructors to develop curricula, assignments, and lesson plans that integrate information literacy, critical thinking, and research skills into course and curricular content.

The SEAM services are free and available to anyone in the University of Iowa community.
