Research Consultations


  • Book 24 hours in advance
  • 10-60 minutes, as many times as the students need
  • Meet in the library

What students can expect from a consultation:

  • A collaborative experience
  • Discuss the assignment
  • Review specific concepts related to the research process
  • Look at specific tools to use for searching
  • Find resources that may be helpful

To prepare for the consultation, students should:

  • Be familiar with their assignment
  • Understand the parameters of the project and resources they need
  • Be prepared to be fully engaged in the process - the librarian is a guide, not someone who can and will give all the answers!
