One on One Research Appointments

Research Consultations may be made by contacting the Reference Desk at

These appointments are designed to provide in-depth research assistance for a given topic, provide help getting started with a research topic, or even help finding a research topic.  

Appointments are not required for shorter consultations; just stop by our reference desk, give us a call, or send us an email.

Here is a sample of questions we typically receive:
  • I have a research assignment and I don't know where to begin.  Can you help suggest a starting point?
  • I have to write a paper on ________, what is a good resource for this area of law?
  • I couldn't find anything in Westlaw or Lexis, where else should I look?
  • Can you help me come up with a topic for my paper?
