Schedule a Research Consultation
Schedule a meeting with a librarian! During research consultations a librarian can help you locate articles, books, news, data, or statistics about a specific topic; evaluate information and resources; find or incorporate OER (Open Educational Resources) into your course; discuss issues related to copyright, open access, and publishing opportunities; and more!
