Demystifying Primary Sources for Historical Research

Obtaining Research & Writing Assistance

Research Consultations

Librarians are available for appointments customized to the research requirements of particular assignments. We are generally available Monday to Friday, between 9:30 am and 4:30 pm. An advanced notice of at least twenty-four hours is required (excluding weekends):

  • Agatha Barc, Reader Services & Instruction Librarian,
  • Colin Deinhardt, Reader Services & Instruction Librarian,

When requesting an appointment, please send us a copy of the course syllabus and assignment description, and briefly describe any research you have conducted.

Drop-in Appointments

Research assistance is also available at the reference desk on the main floor of the library. The desk is open Monday to Thursday, between 9:30 am and 7:00 pm, and on Friday, 9:30 am to 4:45 pm.

Online Research Assistance

It is also possible to connect with librarians online via the online reference service.

However, the online chat service is best suited for quick lookups or inquiries about specific research resources, such as the library catalogue. For complex questions, please consult with a librarian in-person.
