Need in depth help?

Successful research often begins with guidance from a professional librarian. Librarians ensure you are asking the right questions, searching the right resources, and employing the right search strategies to approach your research with confidence.

You should already have a research topic for which you need assistance. During the consultation, you and the librarian will discuss your research needs in-depth. The librarian can advise you on choosing appropriate research resources, crafting a relevant search strategy, using advanced searching techniques and scholarly publishing.
