Research Appointments

Schedule an individual research session with an experienced reference librarian. Sessions will last up to 30 minutes.

Why make a research appointment?

  • Get help selecting a topic and create a research strategy.
  • Learn to find appropriate books and articles.
  • Get help with MLA or APA citations.

Do I have to schedule an appointment to get help with research?

Who should make an appointment?

If you already know the basics—how to use OneSearch to find out about books and articles—these appointments are for you.

If you just need help with that first step, try modules 3 and 4 of our online tutorial, PILOT, or attend a workshop.

Special note to instructors

The Research Appointment service should not be assigned for extra credit; students will not be given proof that they used it.

If your entire class needs assistance, please arrange for group Library instruction.

Research Appointments are not held during Summer. They will resume during the Fall semester.
