Ask a Librarian: Research Consultations

Information about getting help in the libraries.

"In the nonstop tsunami of global information, librarians provide us with floaties and teach us to swim."

Research Consultations

Need some in-depth help with a question or research project? Need to learn more about using one or more library resources? The librarians will be happy to set up an appointment to work with you on your project.

Research Consultations can be

  • in person, on any campus
  • online, via Zoom

Evening and weekend consultations are available, but may take a little longer to set up, do to staffing issues.
