Service Description

What is a research consultation?

A research consultation is a one-on-one appointment with a librarian for extensive, in-depth research assistance. If you need more help than can be provided at the reference desk, or from the live chat with a librarian service, a research consultation appointment may be the right option for you. We will do our best to match you with a librarian who has some expertise in the subject area of your research. 

During a Research Consultation a librarian can:

  • Help you formulate a research strategy
  • Demonstrate effective searches in the library catalog
  • Suggest strategies for searching specific databases
  • Help you search the Web for relevant and reliable information
  • Explain how to gain access to material held at other libraries
