Research Assistance

Research Consultations are driven by the needs of the researcher. Librarians can help you:

  • Narrow down your research topic or focus, including advising you on which topics have more or fewer resources to start with.
  • Find the best sources and resources related to your topic, whether they are books, journal articles, items in special collections, databases, or more.
  • Master the Library’s search tools so you can find what you’re looking for effectively and efficiently.
  • Discover sources you may have missed in your research so far to make sure you leave no stone unturned.
  • Format your bibliography and properly cite your sources.
  • Connect with other services and resources at the Library, like workshops in the Gelardin New Media Center or access to the Library of Congress.

Click to schedule a research consultation (before submitting your request, review the SCS Library Calendar for the Librarian's availability). Appointments are generally available Monday through Thursday between noon EST and 7:00PM EST and should be scheduled one week in advance. Other appointment times may be accommodated upon request. Appointments are conducted in-person (c203) or virtually (Zoom video-conferencing software).
