Research Help Appointments
Make a research help appointment with a librarian. We can help you form a research question, develop a search strategy, find sources for a literature review, and more.
For research inquiries requiring more than ten minutes of one-on-one assistance, students, faculty, and staff are encouraged to schedule a research appointment with a librarian. It is recommended but not required to schedule the appointment with the corresponding subject liaison librarian.
Appointments must be made at least 24 hours in advance of the requested appointment time. Appointments can be cancelled up until the start time of the appointment. Users are requested to cancel their appointment either through the system-generated confirmation email or directly with the librarian before the start time of the appointment. Librarians will hold the appointment time for 15 minutes before cancelling the remainder of the appointment as a no-show.
30 min, Introductory Research: Not sure where to start? Meet with a librarian for 30 minutes to get a solid start to any research project.
1-hour, In-depth Research: Are you in the trenches of a research project? A 1-hour appointment is perfect for big or difficult research projects, capstone projects, graduate research, or challenging research questions.
Although any librarian can meet with any student or faculty member in need of research help, it can be beneficial to meet with the librarian who specializes in your discipline. To view the librarians subject areas, click the info icon by their name.
