Get Research Help... Virtually!

How to get help on your research project without coming into the library.

""Your classes have gone online. The Fulton Library has shortened hours and the main bookshelves are closed. There are germs everywhere…but you still have research papers and reports due. How are you going to find the sources you need to write them? 

The good news is our librarians are still providing research help; we’re just answering those questions virtually! If you have questions about creating a research plan, figuring out how to use our databases, deciding which sources are good to use, getting copies of articles or books—anything related to research really—you can ask us. We know this is a stressful time and we would love to help make this part of finishing the semester just a little bit easier on you.

Here are all the ways you can get in touch with a librarian:

When you make a virtual appointment with a librarian, we’ll send you a confirmation email that includes a link to an online meeting room. We can share screens during the meeting, so we can show you how to get the most out of our databases and troubleshoot any problems you might be experiencing.

Don’t forget the Fulton Library has thousands of online resources, from ebooks to streaming music and video to databases packed with articles about all kinds of topics. And, even though the third, fourth, and fifth floors are closed, you can still get books from us by placing a hold on what you’d like to check out or asking for help at the first floor Circulation Desk. We’ll grab the book and have it waiting for you at the Circulation Desk. If all of this seems a bit overwhelming, check out our online tutorials to get started finding books, articles, and more.
