Research appointment is an individual search session, up to an hour in length, in which a student works intensively with a librarian to identify the best sources for a given topic. It is scheduled so both individuals can plan their time and the librarian can search for some of the information in advance.

How do I schedule one?

  1. Complete the Research Appointment Application
  2. Email completed form to [email protected] or drop the printed form by the library
  3. The librarian will schedule the appointment

Participating Librarians

At least three days’ notice should be given for the librarian to prepare for the appointment. Impromptu research assistance might also be available without a written worksheet.


We interviewed several RSU students about how the library resources benefited them the most during their Capstone research. Here’s what they had to say.
