We appreciate your feedback.
Students and faculty may request individual consultations to discuss in-depth research concerns with librarians. Consultations may be scheduled for 30 minutes or 1 hour, depending on the need, with the goal of providing guidance about the direction of the research and empower each person to dig deeper. They may be scheduled by clicking on the Make an Appointment link in the Ask a Librarian box to the right.
