Reference Appointment

Make an appointment with a librarian to receive tailored, uninterrupted research assistance. Consultations are 30-45 minutes long and are normally scheduled between 9:00am and 4:00pm Monday through Friday. You will be contacted by a librarian within 48 hours, excluding weekends.

By scheduling an appointment, you give us advanced notice that enables us to think more thoroughly about your topic and to identify the resources that are most relevant. However, during these appointments, we will not do your research for you, nor will we be able to help you with the mechanics of writing a paper
