Library Research Consultation Request

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 Research Consultation to meet one-on-one with a Librarian to discuss your question or project.
