Schedule a Research Appointment

Schedule a research help appointment with a librarian in-person or online with video chat and screen sharing.

Please schedule at least 24 hours in advance so the librarian can plan ahead.

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.

How long are consultations?

We offer consultations for either 30 or 60 minutes.

In most cases, 30 minutes is plenty of time to go over a topic, get started finding resources, review citations, and more. Since our librarians spend time serving the entire campus community, we only recommend 60 minute sessions if you are working on a large scale project such as a thesis or capstone project or if you anticipate that you will need extra time to work with a librarian.

On-campus consultations are held in the Library offices, Room 340, right behind the Library Help Desk in SAC.

Can we meet online? 

Online consultations are held via Zoom. Before you are scheduled to meet the librarian will email you a link to a Zoom meeting room. If you have Zoom downloaded onto your device you will simply need to follow this link to connect for your appointment.

What should I bring? 

The better prepared you and the librarian are for your consultation, the more you will get out of it! Before meeting the librarian may ask for more details about your assignment or topic to help them prepare to meet. On the day of the consultation please bring your assignment as well as any work you've already done, class notes, or anything else you think might help the librarian better understand your research goals.
