Research Consultations

In-depth Research consultations are available to current CSUF students and faculty for individual or small group research assistance on a specific research assignment, topic, or thesis.


Research appointments are most useful when the library user is working on long-term or major research project. Appointments are generally scheduled within five days of the submission of the request. If you need assistance sooner than that, we are always glad to see you at the Reference and Research Services Desks.

When Appointments are Available

Research consultation sessions are scheduled Monday-Friday between the hours of 8:00 a.m. and 6:00 p.m. Evening appointments might be available by special request. Weekend appointments are generally not available.
