About Reference Consultations
Research assistance is available on a walk-in basis at the Service Desk during many of the Library's regular hours. However, if you are working on a detailed and complex research assignment you may find it beneficial to set up a Reference Consultation to meet one-on-one with a Librarian to discuss your question or project.
How long is a session?
Sessions generally last between 15-60 minutes, depending upon your topic and situation. Consultations are available Monday-Friday, 8am-4:30pm, but are not necessarily available immediately. Library staff need a few days to determine schedule availability so please plan accordingly.
