“The Librarian is in” at New Research Consultation Station

Are you a commuter student who wants to make the most of the time you spend on campus?

Have you been out of school for awhile and could use a refresher on the ins and outs of library research, especially the databases?

Are you doing in-depth research for a capstone, Celebration of Scholarship, or Scholars Academy project?

Are you taking a research methods course for a major such as Nursing, History, Theology, JLPSS, Political Science, or Organizational Leadership?

Are you a graduate student researching a thesis, dissertation, or project?

Are you a lifelong learner looking for more effective ways to find information for your job, career, or personal life?

If you answered yes to any of these questions, then the Library’s Research Consultation service is perfect for you!

A research consultation is a one-on-one appointment with a research librarian. Ideal for in-depth research projects, these 30- to 60-minute sessions allow you to discuss your research topic with the librarian and determine the resources and search strategies that will achieve the best results. And because the consultations take place away from the main service desks at our new Research Consultation Station, you’ll have the librarian’s undivided attention.

To schedule a research consultation, visit or go to the Library homepage and click on Make an Appointment. You can select the liaison librarian in your subject area or choose “no preference” for the largest selection of appointment times.

In addition, while most research consultations take place in the Library, you can also meet with a librarian at St. Charles Borromeo, De La Salle Hall’s Courtyard Cafe, or at Lewis’ Oak Brook campus.
