The Library is pleased to offer a research consultation service for students, faculty, and staff. This is an in-depth, customized, one-on-one meeting with a reference librarian to discuss possible information resources and search strategies for class assignments, papers, presentations, Masters theses, and doctoral dissertations.

Please note that consultations are most beneficial to doctoral students who are already have a clearly identified research topic and have done significant research on their own. Additionally, it is a requirement to view our Searching 101 Workshop prior to requesting the consult. The research consultation uses the techniques introduced in this workshop, so it is very important that you already have a foundational understanding.  

To request a research consultation, please visit our Research Consultations page. Any questions? Please don’t hesitate to contact us!
