Research Assistance

Our Ask a Librarian services include email, phone, and online chat options. We're happy to conduct individual research consultations via phone, Blackboard Collaborate, or other online platforms. Schedule an appointment with one of our subject specialists. For more information, please contact Rob Detmering.

Online Instruction

Librarians provide both asynchronous and synchronous online information literacy instruction. We can work with your students in real time via Blackboard Collaborate or other platforms. We can also create custom tutorials, videos, or other content tailored to your class. Additionally, our website includes a variety of basic (Research DIY) and advanced (Productive Researcher) tutorials. If you are interested in a face-to-face session, we can discuss options for doing so safely. You can request online or face-to-face instruction. For more information, please see our instructional resources page or contact Rob Detmering.
