Research Consultations

Have an upcoming research paper, and not sure what to do? Receive free research and writing support from experts at the Library.

Research Consultations do not occur over the summer. They will resume on Sunday, September 15th.

Please note that these research consultations are meant for undergraduates taking introductory or general studies courses. If you are taking a higher level class, or are a graduate or doctoral student, please consult your subject specialist librarian, or schedule an appointment with the Doctoral Research Support Program instead.

Research Consultations are held 3-7pm, Sunday-Thursday. They can either be in-person or on zoom. We also welcome walk-ins as long as a consultant is not already in a scheduled appointment. Consultations are located in the Orange Box of the Orange Room on the first floor of the Main Library.
