Students, faculty and staff with advanced research questions may make a Research Consultation Appointment. In this case, Students, Faculty, and Staff will meet with a subject-specialist librarian to get detailed assistance with their research questions.  It is also possible for small groups of students, especially those working on a group project, to make an appointment with a librarian.

Further research assistance is provided at other service areas: the University Archives and Special Collections, the Chicano Resource Center, and the Irvine Campus Library.
