Due to the Covid-19 emergency, the Reference Librarian will only meet remotely with students who need research help. Students can schedule an appointment by following the instructions below, and the Librarians will create a Microsoft Teams meeting to allow remote in-person interactions.
If you do not need in-person help, you can use the email firstname.lastname@example.org to request support.
Full details about remote reference services are available at https://johncabot.libguides.com/services/reference.
To book an appointment with one of the Reference Librarians, first you have to select the type of appointment among the following categories:
- Citation assistance - if you need help in citing sources, reviewing your bibliographies, or to make sure that the in-text citations are correct;
- Thesis assistance - if you are working on your thesis and you need help, especially with the template;
- Research consultation - if you need help researching sources for a project;
- EN 110 appointment (50 minutes) - this is specifically for EN 110 students whose instructors ask them to make a mandatory appointment with the librarians for a research consultation
After selecting the Appointment Type, you can choose the librarian you would like to work with. Consider that the librarians have different schedules, so if you want to have more options, you should leave the default "No preference."
Then, you select the date in the calendar, and finally you select the time slot that you prefer. The appointment will be automatically set to the length specified by the appointment type.
If you think you might need more time than the pre-selected one, do not hesitate to contact the chosen librarian for more details.
Students can meet with the librarians at different locations. Make sure to check the confirmation email for the exact location.
Walk-ins are welcome too!
Remote walk-ins can be done using the chat feature in Microsoft Teams.
