Research Help

Librarians are available to help you with your research assignments and interests throughout the semester. Visit the library for one-on-one help from a librarian Monday through Friday during most business hours.

You can schedule a 30-minute research appointment in advance by completing the Request Research Appointment Form. We are available for research help by appointment Monday through Friday during the fall and spring semesters, and Monday through Thursday during the summer session.

Librarians can also help over email (submit your question here) and over the phone at (916) 608-6612.
