Research Consultants

The Knowledge Market will be closed October 24-26 for Fall Break.

Research consultants are highly-trained students ready to help you improve your library research skills. Research consultants can help you:

  • Brainstorm topics
  • Develop research strategies to be more effective
  • Navigate databases, government websites, and citation manuals
  • Understand terms like "peer-reviewed" and "scholarly"
  • Differentiate between primary and secondary sources
  • Read and evaluate sources for credibility and relevance
  • Cite research and create annotated bibliographies
