Students, faculty, and staff may schedule an appointment with a librarian for one-on-one assistance in finding relevant information for research papers and other projects. A research consultation may include guidance on how to use the Library's many resources, in print and online. Consultations can take place in person, by phone, or by web conference.

Expected response time

Weekdays: A librarian will try to respond as quickly as possible, sometimes immediately and usually within a few hours.

Evenings, Weekends, Holidays, University breaks, and Summers: While librarians often check for emailed questions, it may take a little longer (up to 24 hours) to respond.
