Tips for scheduling your Personalized Consultation:

  • It's best to schedule your consultation a couple weeks before the assignment is due. 

  • Be prepared to provide as much information about the assignment or paper and your topic as possible when you schedule.

  • Please schedule consultations as far in advance as possible, at least two days, to allow the librarian enough time to prepare.
