Meetings typically last from thirty minutes to an hour and are available throughout the academic year.

Depending on a student's needs, sessions may include (but are not limited to) assistance with:

  • general search strategies
  • choosing and using library databases to find relevant books, articles, images, and other materials
  • finding credible Internet sources
  • evaluating and citing authoritative information sources
  • obtaining materials from other libraries
  • creating a bibliography

To make arrangements, please stop by the Information Desk in Burke Library or request an appointment through our convenient research appointment request form.
