Who Can Help Me With ...?

A librarian is available most hours of the day for help via our online chat service for immediate needs.

Librarians are assigned to every WR101 class, every FOCUS program, and to all first-year students via the Residence Hall Librarian program. These librarians will be your first point of contact for any assignment or question you have. There is also a subject librarian for every academic department. As your research becomes more sophisticated, you may need to work with a specialist. Set up a Zoom appointment to meet with a subject librarian one-on-one online.

Research consultations are one-on-one Zoom or in-person meetings scheduled with a subject librarian. You bring your assignment and questions to this meeting and you and the librarian then work out what strategies and research tools might best help you formulate the bibliography for your paper. This is an excellent way to learn about library research, saving you time and frustration.

Make an appointment to meet with a consultant from the Writing Studio.
