One-on-One Research Help

The One-on-One research sessions are 30 minutes, one-on-one consultations with a librarian tailored to meet your specific research needs.

A librarian will give undivided attention to anyone needing general library or specialized help with research projects and/or course assignments.

Fill out the form above, and a librarian will respond within 48 hours to confirm the consultation appointment.  Appointments may be face-to-face in the librarian's office or virtual through Blackboard Collaborate.



Arrange a one-on-one meeting with a librarian to get help with:

- Creating effective keyword searches

- Narrowing your research topic or creating a research question

- Finding resources to consult

- Evaluating and citing your resources

We require 72 hours notice.

- Visit our Reference Desk on the 3rd floor near the computers
