A library Research Appointment is an opportunity for you to get one-on-one research help from a librarian! Most often you'll need help finding academic sources such as research articles or books for your assignments or projects. Librarians can provide some ways to get started with research and how to navigate the library research databases.
What happens during a research appointment?
Typically a librarian will ask you about your assignment/project, what the requirements are (how many sources, what types of sources, how long it will be, etc.), what ideas you have for your topic, what articles you've found so far and what kind of help you need. Depending on what you need, we'll go from there!
