Research Consultation Request

Research consultations are only available to LMU students, faculty, and staff. We can conduct either individual or group consultations.

If you need immediate research help, please use the chat box to get help from a librarian.

Research consultations may involve assistance with:

  • Narrowing down a topic.
  • Finding relevant articles, books, or primary sources.
  • Going over the steps of a research project in-depth.

If you need intensive help with writing or citing, please contact the Academic Resource Center.

All of our reference librarians are experienced researchers who work with students from all disciplines and courses. However, they can also provide advanced research support in specific areas, as indicated below.
