1-2-1 Research Consultations

A librarian is still always on call or at the reference desk Monday - Thursday: 8:00 AM to 4:30 PM ; 6:00 PM - 9:00 PM, and Friday: 8:00 AM to 4:30 PM. However, that may not meet all of your research needs. That is why the librarians of Heterick Memorial Library will continue to offer 121 Research Consultations.

121 Research Consultations provide an individual or group an opportunity to schedule a 30-60 minute appointment with a librarian for an in-depth research consultation, which can cover anything from capstone consultations to database instruction to resource management to tracking an elusive citation or paper. Student, faculty, and staff are all invited to schedule a consultation.

To schedule, you can email or you can email the librarian of your choice (for information on each librarian, visit Meet the Librarians). Include days and times you are available and your topic.

We look forward to meeting with you!
