Research Consultations

Research Consultation Request form

What is a Research Consultation?

Research Consultations are scheduled appointments with a reference librarian for individualized, uninterrupted, one-on-one assistance with library research. Consultations are available to all TCC students, faculty and staff.

What will a research consultation include?

It will include a conversation about your research needs and what sources will best meet your needs. We will teach you how to search for and locate books, e-books, and articles available in our subscription databases and other information sources as needed. Research consultations can also provide assistance with evaluating information and using citation styles (MLA, APA, Turabian).

Why is this different from the help received at the reference desk?

Research consultations provide uninterrupted time with a reference librarian, where individual research need is the focus. While assistance getting started in research is always available at the reference desk, it isn't usually possible for the librarian to spend uninterrupted blocks of time with individuals.

How long does the research consultation last?

Consultation sessions usually last from 30 minutes to 1 hour. If needed, a follow-up appointment may be scheduled.

When are research consultation appointments available?

Appointments are available Monday - Thursday from 8 a.m. - 8 p.m. (7p.m. in summer term), Fridays from 8 a.m. – 4 p.m. Saturday appointments may be arranged depending on Library hours and librarian availability.

How do I request a research consultation?

Complete and submit the Research Consultation Request form.

Following the submission of your request, a librarian will contact you to finalize your appointment time the next business day. If you have not been contacted within that time, please call the Reference Desk on the second floor of the main campus Library: (850) 201-8383
